Think: WHAT IF this could happen on the moon? SHIFTboston seeks to collect visions that will provoke thought on the moon as a new destination. They are calling for radical ideas for new lunar elements such as rovers, growing pods, inflatable structures, and lunar habitats. Competitors are encouraged to form teams in order to tackle multiple concepts.
