The Journey To The Moon
The lunar vehicle with the Audi lunar quattro is set to launch into space in 2017 travelling in the Dnepr Rocket at up to speeds of up to 7.8 kilometres a second. Before reaching the moon it will have to overcome the gravitational pull of the earth, intense radiation of sun and extreme temperature changes.
The journey covers over 380,000 kilometres and will take nearly 5 days as the service module will orbit the earth in an expanding spiral in order to reach the moon at a precisely calculated angle.
The planned landing site is situated just north of the moon’s equator, close to the 1972 landing site of the Apollo 17, NASA’s last manned mission to the moon.
