MUMBAI: Discovery Channel will air a one-hour special show titled ‘Moonbound: India’s Race to the Moon’ based on the exciting journey of TeamIndus on 30 October at 9 pm. The show captures the seven-year journey of a team which germinated with a group of friends coming together and went on to become TeamIndus.

The on-air broadcast of the show is Co-Presented by Amazon Echo and Co-Powered by Levi Strauss and PUBG, Nokia as the Mobile Partner. Sony Bravia, Forever Mark, Idea 4G, Honda Motorcycles and Phillips Trimmer have come on board as Associate sponsors.

It started in 2007 when The Google Lunar XPRIZE, the largest incentivised space exploration challenge in human history, was announced. A small group of friends came together and coughed up personal resources to register last minute as the only Indian team in the global contest. This young enthusiast team, with no aerospace background, had the grit, the tenacity to take on the best in the world in their endeavor to win the $30 million, Google Lunar XPRIZE.

Conceived in a server room in Noida, near India’s capital, Rahul Narayan helmed the whole challenge and took the first step of deciding to participate in this global lunar race. He started looking out for people who would join him out of sheer passion unaware about the challenges the team would face as the race would progress. An inhouse robotic rover named ‘Ek Choti Si Asha’ was designed with the Ackerman steering concept and a deployable masthead.
