They take down the moon!

Full Metal Energy, the team led by Cannes Innovation, wins the international ActInSpace final with an autonomous energy production project on the moon which is to provide the energy necessary for the development of the 1st lunar base.

To achieve this, the team designed a system that uses the moon in an autonomous cycle, in particular to compensate for the lack of energy during lunar nights, which last no less than 14 days ... or rather 14 nights?

The team, composed by Tomasz WRONSKI, Driss LARAQUI, Adeline ANDRIEU, AXEL MEYER, Gregory GUICHENEY, wins the world's largest space hackathon!

  • To celebrate, they will board the Airbus Zero G for a parabolic flight in micro gravity. Sensitive souls beware!

ActInSpace is a hackathon whose goal is to bring out brilliant ideas, but also to support them to make successful businesses. The Ideation brick is an integral part of our service offering, as is the accompanying support.

Since its creation, ActInSpace has marked the creation and development of 36 start-ups, 75% of which are still active. Let’s hope that the 2021 edition will contribute significantly to expanding this already very positive assessment!

We warmly congratulate the whole Full Metal Energy team on this superb victory! We will follow their developments with interest to support them in the different phases of their development.
