Astrobotic Griffin Lander

The U.S., the Soviet Union and China are the only nations to land on the moon. But soon, everyone can make their mark on its surface. Affordable moon missions are underway with the development of Astrobotic’s Griffin Lander, the world’s first privately owned spacecraft. To prepare for the harsh, unpredictable conditions in space, Astrobotic uses SOLIDWORKS to build and test all components for the world’s first private mission to the moon.
