Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has partnered with Earthrise Space in sponsorship of Omega Envoy, a non-profit space technology developer competing in the Google Lunar X PRIZE (GLXP). The team will compete by safely landing a robot on the moon and responding back with images and data. Trelleborg will provide sealing education, selection guidance and products for the team’s use.
Ruben D. Nunez, president and founder of ESI, said: “The seal education and products they are providing will be put to direct use by our student team members as they build and test hardware for our GLXP mission. Trelleborg’s experience is exactly what we need to enhance our team and design for our mission to the moon, scheduled to launch in 2014.”
