    Your Tweet on Board

    We will include a 140 character message (ASCII only) of the backer's choice in the memory of both the two Cislunar Explorer spacecraft. They will carry this message for their entire mission, and the message will reside there for as long as the spacecraft remain in space (which might be thousands of years).
    You'll have the option for this message to be kept private or for it to appear online at the same site as the spacecraft schematics and software.

    National Space Society Membership

    As a thank-you, our collaborator, the National Space Society, will give you an introductory membership. This amount includes taxes and fees associated with the Kickstarter campaign. Then, if the Cislunar Explorers mission receives NASA's CubeQuest Challenge prize, and the prize we receive covers the costs of the project, this amount will be used by the NSS for its STEM and space advocacy efforts (so, if we reach the moon, you're giving twice!)

    Lunar T Shirt

    At this reward level there are two possibilities: (1) If the mission fails before reaching lunar orbit, we'll send you a T Shirt with an image of the spacecraft on the back and "Cislunar Explorer" on the front. (2) If the spacecraft reaches the moon, we'll include at least some form of data, such as the date the spacecraft enters lunar orbit or--ideally--a low-resolution picture of the moon from the on-board visual-navigation system.

    Send your Tweet to the Moon

    We will transmit a 140 character message (ASCII only) of the backer's choice toward the two Cislunar Explorer spacecraft at a point in the mission of our choosing (and we'll let you know ahead of time). This message will continue on past the moon into interplanetary, and then interstellar, space. Say hi to those nice folks on Proxima Centauri. This reward includes all lower-level rewards as well!

    You'll have the option for this message to be kept private or for it to appear online at the same site as the spacecraft schematics and software.

    Send a Message from the Moon

    We will include a 140 character message (ASCII only) of the backer's choice in the memory of both the two Cislunar Explorer spacecraft. If they survive long enough, at least one of them will transmit this message back to Earth on a UHF frequency (roughly 437Mhz). It can be picked up on HAM radio equipment. This reward also includes all lower-level rewards!

    You'll have the option for this message to be kept private or for it to appear online at the same site as the spacecraft schematics and software.

    Launch Your Own Water Sample to the Moon

    Send your favorite water to space! It can help propel the prototype Cislunar Explorer spacecraft to the moon. A few drops from a sacred spring? A memento from a glacier from your Alaska trip? A sample from that fountain on campus where you proposed? L.A. tap? Provide us one gram (i.e. one cubic centimeter) of water of your choice. Although the propulsion system is very robust and doesn't need particularly clean water, we'll filter it and refine it as necessary to make sure the mission is successful.
