HOUSTON, Texas: Next year, there will be a racing competition between two remote control cars on the moon, and interestingly, these cars were designed by British high school students. In October next year, the vehicles will be launched by SpaceX’s Falcon Nine rocket and will be housed inside a ride developed by the first private company to land on the moon.

These vehicles are designed in such a way that they will run on a specific path on the moon in an atmosphere of gravity equal to one-sixth of the earth.

The competition is organized by a company called Moonmark Space, a scientific and entertainment company. The design of the car is still final, and the selected team will work with Frank Stephenson, who has designed the famous car called McLaren PV. In this way, the world’s first car will run on the surface of the moon.

For the first eight weeks, there will be competitions between students from different colleges and between six teams of five members each.

In the end, there will be a race on the moon between the two cars of the two surviving teams. These challenges include the stages of e-gaming, drone racing, and space commercialization.
