Born to Design: The Future of Moon Exploration

The U.S., the Soviet Union and China are the only nations to land on the moon today. But soon, everyone can make their mark on its surface.

Affordable missions to the moon are underway with the development of Astrobotic’s Griffin Lander, the world’s first privately owned spacecraft.

To prepare for the harsh, unpredictable conditions in space, Astrobotic uses SOLIDWORKS to build and test all components for the world’s first private mission to the moon.

Watch the video to see why stage one of private lunar exploration is about to take off.
