Get to know the Part-Time Scientists, their team of rocket scientists, and embark with them and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) on a heartful discussion on the future of private space exploration!

The Part-Time Scientists are among the top 5 teams in the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition, a new space race towards the moon. The international team of scientists and engineers is based right here in Berlin, Germany, and spent the past three years building the technology to get back to the moon for good. The goal of the competition is to land a rover safely on the surface of the moon and travel a distance of at least 500 meters, over 43 years after man last walked the moon.
