Jan 2018 – NewSpace Start-Up Aims To Send First Brazilian Probe To Moon

Co-Founder of celestialdata, Lucas Fonseca was profiled in Forbes magazine for his space launch company, Airvantis.

“NewSpace start-up ‘Airvantis’ is aiming for a 2021 launch of Brazil’s first lunar probe that would circle the Moon in a highly- elliptical orbit. The hope is that the nominal six month cubesat mission’s 7-kilogram payload — dubbed ‘Garatea L’ — will both further astrobiology and reveal new deep space radiation insights that one day might help astronauts on a mission to Mars.”
