The purpose of the DOGE-1 mission is to acquire “lunar-spatial intelligence.”
The satellite will use onboard cameras and sensors to do the same.
DOGE-1 is the creation of the Geometric Energy Corporation. The lunar bound satellite will fly to the moon onboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.
The GEC took to its Twitter on May 9 to announce the mission.
The Verge reports that DOGE-1 is a cube satellite.
Geometric Energy Corporation's DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon will involve Geometric Space Corporation (GSC) mission management collaborating with SpaceX to launch a 40kg cubesat as a rideshare on a Falcon 9 lunar payload mission in Q1 2022. The payload will obtain lunar-spatial intelligence from sensors and cameras on-board with integrated communications and computational systems.
"Having officially transacted with DOGE for a deal of this magnitude, Geometric Energy Corporation and SpaceX have solidified DOGE as a unit of account for lunar business in the space sector," said Geometric Energy's Chief Executive Officer Samuel Reid.
"This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce," said SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero. "We're excited to launch DOGE-1 to the Moon!"
