Submit messages for the Hope Moonshot

The Readiness Institute at Penn State — a Penn State Outreach service — is embarking on a mission to help foster hope among people around the world.

Students, educators and members of the global community are invited to share messages of hope — for free — that will be included aboard a mission to the moon. The Hope Moonshot, presented by the RI at Penn State and Global Moonshots in Education, is scheduled for launch in the second half of 2021. Those who want to aspire to new heights for 2021 are being asked to submit their hopes before Jan. 22. Learn more here.
