mISSION PROFILE

 

LEAP acts as a pre-cursor mission of the Lunar Zebro which aims to be the first university student buildt interplanetary rover in the World to the Moon.

If the pre-cursor mission is succesful, the the team will gain immense amount of oprational experience in managing of a moon mission, gather essential data which could have major design impacts on the final rover design and validate crucial subsystems for the final mission in 2022.

LEAP will fly on privately owned landers like the  ALINA lander.
