To the Moon: ERAU's EagleCam

93% of $325,000 goal
This campaign ended on March 20, 2021, but you can still make a gift to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University by clicking here!

EagleCam will be taking the world’s ultimate selfie when it captures the first-ever third person views of a spacecraft making an extraterrestrial landing. More than just a camera, EagleCam will also uncover new scientific findings through dust plume imagery, dust accumulation analysis, and lunar surface imagery. As the Intuitive Machines Nova-C Lunar Lander approaches the surface of the Moon, EagleCam will separate from the lander to capture the moment it touches down.

Slated for launch in Q4 of this year, the CubeSat camera system is being designed and built by Embry-Riddle engineering students and faculty researchers. To learn more and get a behind-the-scenes look at the project, visit the EagleCam website and follow the student team on Instagram.

Support from nearly 40 alumni and friends, corporate partnerships, contracts and grants has launched the EagleCam team to more than 90% of a $325,000 fundraising goal. The $25,000 we have yet to secure will purchase the launcher, which will propel EagleCam off the Nova-C Lunar Lander during descent.

Will you help bring this history-making mission to completion with a gift today?

A full list of EagleCam donors will be included in a text file on EagleCam's internal hard drive. That's right, this is your chance to have your name on the Moon!
