The Seven Sisters is an initiative to discover abundant resources for humanity’s exploration of space through the implementation of world-leading surface exploration and construction technologies developed within Australia’s rapidly expanding Space sector.
The ultimate purpose is to enable humanity’s exploration of new worlds. The Seven Sisters initiative represents a truly global collaboration. NASA intends to fly the rover to the lunar surface provided it meets a range of conditions during this phase of the collaboration. It is expected to launch in 2026.
Led by a world-class consortium of space, industry and research leaders, SEVEN SISTERS is a purpose-driven mission of discovery. Fleet Space Technologies, OZ Minerals, University of Adelaide, UNSW, Unearthed, Tyvak Australia and Fugro are already developing advanced technologies that will transform space exploration. The founding members pledged their support in 2019 and have spent 2020 adapting proven technologies for this ground-breaking mission.
With Fleet Space’s Centauri constellation already operating in Low Earth Orbit and the first generation of prototype probes being deployed and tested this summer, the mission is already proving hardware and space systems.
