Ytterligare ett år håller på att lida mot sitt slut, och vilket år det har varit! Vi har hunnit med massor av roliga saker och träffat intressanta personer.
Vi har bland annat träffat forskare och ingenjörer vid IRF i Kiruna. Vi har under våren arbetat intensivt mot satta deadlines för att se om vår “organisation” kan leverera under stor tidspress, det kan vi! Och nu under december månad fick vi möjligheten att hjälpa till i Musikhjälpens årliga insamling som i år samlade in 74 miljoner!!! till arbeten för att motverka barnsexhandel. Vår egen auktion drog in över 30 000 kr!
Nu ser teamet fram emot en välförtjänt semester över julhelgen och nyår.
Vi ses i januari!
God Jul och ett Gott Nytt År!
//Yet another year is looming to its end, and what a year it has been! We have had tons of fun and meet amazing people.
We have, as an example, meet up with scientists and engineers at IRF in Kiruna. During the spring we stress tested our organization and worked towards strict deadlines to see if we can deliver top quality under heavy time-press, and we did! We have also been helping Musikhjälpen with there annual fundraising. This years theme was to raise awareness and money to battle child trafficking. The total amount of donations accumulated to 74 million sek! And our own auction helped raise over 30 000 sek!
The team is now looking forward to an well deserved vacation and we will be back in full swing in January.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!//

You are officially invited!
The Umeå Lunar Venture Innovation Fair is happening and it’s an open event for everyone. Bring your friends and come and meet the Moon Rover and hear about how we became one of the biggest space projects in Sweden.
Umeå Lunar Venture is a partnership between us (Space Science Sweden) and Umeå University. Our main goal is to put Swedens first scientific experiment on the moon in the end of next year. And as you know we are currently preparing the measuring instrument at full speed to make this happen!
The Innovation Fair is a opportunity for anyone who is interested in learning more about our work. You will get the chance to meet the Moon Rover that is taking us to the moon and it’s creators (Part-Time Scientists) who is coming all the way from Germany. And of course the students from the engineering and physics programme will be there!
Down below you can see the programme for the day and evening. Feel free to invite your friends and help us spread the word!

For some time we have been planning to have Discovery visit our lab and on Wednesday they came by. They did a report about the Umeå Lunar Venture project that will air in the near future (we will link it here). Anyway, here are some pictures from the their visit.
As some of you might already know we attended ForskarFredag a few weeks ago. ForskarFredag is an open house event for the public to attend and get inspired by science. We were there and talked about our mission Umeå Lunar Venture, the moon and the electric fields that we are exploring. Here are some photos from the day.
