Our History

Small steps to giant leaps

Our History


PTScientists was originally founded back in late 2008 to compete in the Google Lunar XPRIZE. With a cry of “hell yeah, it’s rocket science!” Robert Boehme began assembling a small team of passionate space advocates and technical minds, as that’s where our story began.


We’ve come a long way since then, and as the team grew, so did our ambitions, and we are now focused on developing a sustainable payload delivery service for the Moon’s surface and lunar orbit.

Gathering a group of friends – scientists and engineers – Robert asked if there were anything stopping them trying to land on the Moon. They found no reason not to try, and the rest is history!
