Masat-1 spies the Moon

Hungary's first satellite, Masat-1 is still going strong and indulges us with lovely pictures from space. It captured images of the southern hemisphere of the Earth, the Sun and our target, the Moon. It may not be the prettiest picture of our companion, but it is nonetheless made from space, with a camera that is smaller than a fingernail and weighs as much as two euro coins – and Hungarian.

MoonBots is back!

The third annual contest of the X Prize Foundation and LEGO is here, and this time it is about an important issue of the actual GLXP missions: heritage artifacts left around the lunar landscape. The competition is divided into two phases. In Phase One, the teams of 2-5 youth between the age of 9 and 17 are invited to share their thoughts about these issues and lunar landscape challenge design in a fun and creative video.

Russian lunar program: redesign in progress

The latent disorder and defects of the Russian space program came abruptly in the limelight after the loss of the Phobos-Grunt probe. Though the first reactions stated that the failure of the Martian probe wouldn't affect the lunar program, the odds were against that. After a good six months, the redesigned program starts to take shape, with more careful missions and launch dates shifted to the right with a few years (again).

Why the Puli?

We have asked the above question from our supporters. Here are the first answers from our planned series that we received from two renowned Hungarians, an economist and a businessman.

Why the Puli?

I am Attila Chikán, and as a professor and leader of civilian and economic organizations, I feel personally responsible for the development of the country and I try to find grassroots movements that drive this development, lead the way and show us the power of collaboration. The Puli Space project promises that in many ways. On one hand, it's pure innovation, pushing the boundaries beyond even our wildest dreams: space travel and landing on the Moon. On the other hand, such a project has many more advantages: delivering an important message of the future through education: the importance of space sciences. And developments in technology could advance our lives in every aspect, from medicine to software development or engineering. For me, this project is about to dare to dream big and to do about it: many tell and know that the know-how is present in this small country. Here is the opportunity to prove it.

I wish with all of my heart good luck, many supporters and even more enthusiastic members for the Puli! To the Moon!

Attila Chikán

The Puli project is a Hungaricum.
Like the Makó onion.
It has many layers.

The middle is pure innovation, a whole quarry of technology improvements.

The layer above consists of the enthusiastic team who cares about and helps the project. They're building a dream unseen in this country in decades. Amateurs and professionals, experts and supporters working together.

The outer layer is the Hungarian society. One of the goals of the Puli could be to bring our nation together. Thanks to this dreamlike mission – Puli to the Moon! – which is unassailable, inspirational and clear. When was the last time for such noble cooperation?

I wish good luck for the Puli with all my heart, and unlimited enthusiasm for their supporters!
