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 
<http://www.googlelunarxprize.org/lunar/teams/barcelona-moon>).

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

    * *Call for Lunar Science and Technology
      <http://www.barcelonamoonteam.com/calls/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=104&Itemid=83&lang=en>*:
      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
      <http://www.barcelonamoonteam.com/calls/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=109&Itemid=88&lang=en>*:
      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 
category *will have a reserved compartment* in the main rover of the 
mission, *envisaged to be sent to the Moon by the end of 2013*. The 
winning proposal will also receive *100.000EUR as prize and up to 
200.000EUR to build and materialise the project*.
