Early Registration is Open – Register Today
 

Welcome to the second season of the Plant the Moon Challenge. Your mission starts Summer 2021. Whether you’re a pilot navigating astrobotany on your own or a crew of seasoned zany space botanists, there’s a path for you to take to grow plants on the Moon…and now Mars!

The Plant the Moon Challenge is for anyone daring enough to explore and stretch the limits of human possibility. To be a part of the next frontier – the habitation of the Moon and Mars.

Young or old. K-12 or university student. Garden or space hobbyist. Scientist or simply a Stars Wars fanatic…  Humanity’s future is in your hands. Earth’s space programs count on YOU to set up the human race and our astronauts with food security in space for exploration and habitation.

Can we count on you?
