Geometric Energy Corporation announced DOGE-1, a dogecoin-funded mission to the Moon that SpaceX will launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket in the first quarter of next year. Despite Elon Musk making an SNL appearance last night, Dogecoin lost over a third of its price on Sunday, which may have had something to do with the CEO calling it a ‘hustle’ during his guest-host spot. Read more for two videos, including one from his SNL appearance, and additional information.
The DOGE-1 mission will transport an 88-pound (40-kilogram) cube satellite as a payload on a Falcon 9 rocket that is designed to obtain lunar-spatial intelligence from sensors and cameras on-board with integrated communications and computational systems. The company did not disclose the mission’s financial value, although SpaceX’s Rideshare program does state that the cost could be as low as $1-million to send a 441-pound (200-kilogram) payload.
