On Monday, I was contacted by a journalist from the Danish Technical Weekly, "Ingeniøren" and gave an interview about our Team, the project and GLXP.
Today the article (in Danish) is on their website:

Credit is due to our very competent press contact, Signe (, who made this happen.

We also started discussion about fundraising, and the importance of it being simple to do. Next on my agenda is therefore to get paypall working for donation on this website.

Nice meeting on Wednesday

NewsPosted by info Fri, October 24, 2008 09:51:19
On Wednesday evening, Euroluna held it first public meeting at Earth 45°48'14.27"N, 8°37'23.88"E, i.e. northern Italy.

The meeting went well, starting with a presentation by Dr. P. Haastrup of the project. Selected slides are attached here.

Good discussions followed, and in addition two presentations were made first by Dr. D. Kubler from Microchip Technology srl, about radiomeasurments in the quiete cone behind the moon, which was planned to be part of the TrailBlazer mission, and second by Dr. A. Autino from Andromeda s.r.l. on real time control systems and about integrated project and test engineering systems.

All in all a pleasent evening meeting, which was captured also by video recording, and selected parts may later be added here.

For the future, additional meetings will be planned, possibly with the next place in Copenhagen, Denmark. This has not been scheduled yet, but possibly in November.

Blog update

NewsPosted by info Wed, October 15, 2008 09:02:19
Yesterday, October 14, Euroluna sent our application to GLXP, to officially enter into the competition.

Euroluna has been active for approximately the last year, using our effort on conceptual design, in order to make sure we have a viable concept.

This phase is now over, and we are now sure it will work on the technical side.

It is therefore time to make our effort more public!

Until now we have mostly used to inform more generally. However twitter is too short for real interactions, which should now happen on this blog.

President of the European Lunar Exploration Association
