“Carnegie Mellon is going to the moon, and building and outfitting Moonshot Mission Control is critical to success,” said William “Red” Whittaker, University Founders Research Professor in the Robotics Institute. As CMU launches two rovers over the next two years, we will lead the way.”The control center can be adjusted to fit future CMU space missions. Moonshot Mission Control is planned for rooms 2109 and 2111 inside the Gates Center on CMU’s campus in Pittsburgh. Contributing to Moonshot Mission Control will not only empower the crews of upcoming missions, it will also allow donors to be part of the university’s lunar and space exploration. More information about contributing to Moonshot Mission Control is available on the crowdfunding campaign’s website.
