Lunark: The Mission to Thrive on the Moon

In deepest Greenland the arid landscape stretches out, unchanging, for what looks like hundreds of miles. Hungry polar bears stalk the icy landscape, unforgiving winds blow at -30°C… and two Danes bundled in thick coats build an origami-inspired structure in the snow. The young architects from SAGA Space Architects, Karl-Johan Sørensen and Sebastian Aristotelis, spent three months of profound isolation pushing technology — and human tenacity — into new frontiers.

For the groundbreaking Lunark mission, the SAGA team used Lenovo technology for their remote home’s “brain” — dubbed Odin. Naturally, the Norse-named central PC had a fleet of sensors called “ravens” to collect data and keep the team thriving.

The mission was a resounding success. Read the stories below to share Sebastian and Karl’s simulation of life on the moon and explore the technology making it possible.
