Dear Sir or Madam,

On behalf of the Barcelona Moon Team, I would like to present you two 
calls for experiments on the Moon's surface.

The Barcelona Moon Team is the official Spanish team participating in 
the Google Lunar X prize competition 
<http://www.googlelunarxprize.org/>.  The main goal of the competition 
is to get a robot on the Moon's surface that roams a minimum of 500m 
transmitting live HD images and videos to the earth. To achieve this, 
the Barcelona Moon Team has brought together entrepreneurial, industrial 
and academic experts (more info 

In order to make the most of this amazing mission, the Barcelona Moon 
Team has opened the two following calls:

      The aim of this call is to collect ideas for scientific or
      technological demonstrations to becarried out on the Moon's surface.
    * *Call for Lunar Mini Robots
      The aim of this call is to collect proposals of mini robotsable to
      roam for a maximum distance on the Moon, without wheels, and
      evaluate their final position.

The calls are open to students, professors, researchers, institutions 
and companies. After the selection process, the *winner* of each
