Croatia Planning Moon Landing in 2012

Posted by on December 7th, 2010
The Croatian Astronomical Society Vidulini is planning on putting a rover on the moon by the end of 2012 near where Apollo 17 last landed in 1972. The rover is called Histrohod and will only cost 20,000 Euros to build. The Astronomical Society Vidulini created the first Croatian space program (Astronautika) and is also part of team “Synergy Moon” which is participating in the Google Lunar X Prize contest.

Through a group of mobile devices, “Histrohod” will send televised segments down to Earth.  This is a big challenge for our society and we are extremely proud that our association and our small Istria will become a part of space exploration,” said the Society’s president Marino Rumpic
