We are tireless explorers

From sailing expeditions across the ocean and breathless climbs to the Earth’s apex to permanently inhabiting labs in low-Earth orbit, research and technology development allow us to pursue the most creative of our aspirations.

The greater commercialization and higher accessibility of space, the advancement of technology, the outlining of potential new markets, and the renewed interest from public and private entities on our neighboring celestial body have positioned the Moon, again, at the core of global exploration and infrastructure development roadmaps.

Its proximity to Earth, makes the Moon and cislunar space—the space enclosed within the Moon’s orbit around Earth—a critical place in which to find the answers to major scientific questions about our past, present and future, an ideal test field for new technologies, and a perfect stop on the road to the almost infinite amount of resources resting in space.

eSpace’s latest venture to create a home base for lunar research and technology within Switzerland


eSpace introduced in 2020 a new initiative aimed at bridging a series of identified knowledge and technology gaps within current global lunar exploration and infrastructure development roadmaps by leveraging eSpace expertise and EPFL network of labs, professors, researchers, and motivated students. eSpace global network and expertise place us in an ideal position to act as initiators, mediators, and facilitators of opportunities and collaborations between EPFL laboratories, Swiss enterprises and organizations, and international partners and institutions.


We advocate for a holistic space program that effectively and sustainably explores and develops the Moon.

Currently planned lunar projects are paving the road and enabling new channels for Swiss researchers, technologists, and policy makers to take an active stance and support the development and implementation of lunar missions and infrastructure within this decade.
