Forty-five years ago, Neil Armstrong took his first famous steps on the Moon, but hopes that flights to the satellite of the Earth will become commonplace, and not fulfilled. However, the British team of independent scientists is hoping to change that and literally dig a little deeper.

"Moon Mission 1" will allow people to do something they have never done before - go into the bowels of the Moon. Drilling project on Earth satellite offer British scientists.

"For about ten years, we will send a mission to the Moon. Research will be carried out using the most advanced equipment and drilling technology, "- said the company's founder Lunar Missions Ltd. David Irons.



"Moon Mission 1" was conceived seven or eight years ago. On the Moon conducted a lot of research, but never studied its depths. One of the main objectives of this project - to drill a well and explore the deeper layers of the lunar crust, "- said the director of RT space of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Richard Holdaway.

Space Project, which aims - the study of the lunar interior, funded by Crowdfunding. The organizers plan to collect via kraudfauding platform Kickstarter £ 600 thoUSAnd. They assure that this amount will be enough to kick-start the mission.

For more information about the plans and objectives of the mission told RT told a British politician, former minister of science and technology in the government of conservatives and one of the project leaders, the chairman of Lunar Missions Ltd. Ian Taylor.

"From the point of view of science, the Moon - a very interesting object. However, we are not so many know about it. As part of our expedition we're going to drill a well to a depth of 100 meters. This will allow us to understand how to actually appeared Moon. We want society to be not just a witness to the lunar mission, but her party. In exchange for the above means people will be able to download your data in digital memory sealed capsules, which we leave in the hole after drilling. I think this project is incredible interest for scientists. After all, our mission is to enable them to not only learn more about the Moon, but also to provide substantial public support through so-called "Crowdfunding" on the website kickstarter.com », - said Taylor.
