The first race on the moon will be held in 2021
Cars weighing 2.5 kilograms will be delivered to the moon using the Nova-C module, which will be placed on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
In October 2021, the first car races will be held on the surface of the moon, according to New Atlas. Two cars will take part in the race, which will be controlled remotely. School teams from the United States will develop vehicles. They will also be assisted by the famous designer Frank Stephenson, known for his work in BMW, Mini, Ferrari, Maserati, Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, and McLaren.
The weight of each car will be 2.5 kilograms. They will be controlled remotely via Wi-Fi. These vehicles will be delivered to the moon using the Nova-C module, which will be placed on the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The broadcast of the races is planned to be broadcast using special cameras.
"The Moon Marks Mission 1 competition will feature six teams of high school students selected from all over the United States. They will have to pass a series of qualification tests. Among them race on drones and autonomous vehicles, computer games, and an Olympiad on space knowledge. The top two teams will have a unique opportunity to build their own cars and race on the moon," Moon Mark said in a statement.
Earlier it became known that Toyota is developing a lunar Rover called Lunar Cruiser ("Lunar Cruiser") by analogy with the Toyota Land Cruiser SUV. It is planned that it will go to the Earth satellite in 2030. However, before that, the car is waiting for long tests on our planet.
