The Lotus_XD team preparing for launch

The Lo­tus_XD team (Light pow­er and Op­ti­cal Trans­mis­sion ex­per­i­ment of Uni­ver­si­ty Stu­dents - eX­tra Da­ta) from the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Dres­den de­signed an ex­per­i­ment to test so­lar cells un­der re­duced grav­i­ta­tion­al con­di­tions to be launched on BEXUS 25. These types of so­lar cells could be used for the laser trans­fer of en­er­gy to rovers on the Moon or Mars.

The Lotus_XD team (Light power and Optical Transmission experiment of University Students - eXtra Data) from the Technical University of Dresden designed an experiment to test solar cells under reduced gravitational conditions to be launched on BEXUS 25. These types of solar cells could be used for the laser transfer of energy to rovers on the Moon or Mars.
