The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has called for energy solutions from the engineers to bring power to the moon.

According to the report, nights on the moon can long up to 350 hours, and if habitation needs to be more viable, smart energy solutions are required to bring power to the moon as more solar energy will be required.

For this purpose, NASA has launched a competition having a $5 million prizes, to develop new lunar technology.

According to NASA, the competition is launched in collaboration with the crowdsourcing platform HeroX.

The Chief Executive Officer CEO of HeroX, Christian Cotichini in his statement said “We are again proud to partner with NASA to crowdsource ingenious solutions to interstellar problems,”

In addition to this, he said “This has exciting implications for space exploration, and it could also improve life down here on Earth, in terms of renewable energy use and storage.”

He furthermore added that “As the saying goes, ‘shoot for the Moon and you’ll land among the stars.’ Our talented team of problem solvers will be doing just that.”
