In the northern part of Greenland, about 100 km from the thule air base, drill two Danish entrepreneurs by the name of Sebastian Aristotelis and Karl-Johan Sørensen for the time in a quite unique home.
Together with the architects Saga Space Architects dream the two entrepreneurs of the future to be able to establish a habitable base on the moon.
Their homes must, therefore, look like one, you could imagine to live in on the moon. It is produced in Copenhagen, contains four rooms and are very compressed home until december 2020.
The two entrepreneurs to collect research data, to bring them closer to making the dream of living in space a reality. But right now it is about to simulate a real mission in the right – and very harsh – greenlandic surroundings, and it places big demands on safety and equipment.
Therefore, the entrepreneurs have started a strategic cooperation with værktøjsproducenten Bosch in Denmark, værktøjsgrossisten Carl Ras, sikkerhedseksperten Bjerregaard and tøjproducenten Carhartt.
- There are over 100 miles to the nearest hospital, so Sebastian and Karl-Johan may come in death, if the accident is out. Such are the terms, when we are simulating a real mission.
- It is imperative that we are at the forefront on safety and equipment, and therefore, we have initiated a collaboration with four leading companies in the field of security in their area, says Simon Daniel Haan Kristensen, a partner in the Saga Space Architects.
Cooperation with enterprises makes, among other things, that Sebastian and Karl-Johan goes around Greenland in workwear from Carhartt, as well as polititestede sikkerhedsstøvler. In addition, they have got a lot of hand tools from Bosch, as they can use.
As a manufacturer of, for example, tools, working clothes or sikkerhedsstøvler it may seem a little far from reality to provide the products to the månetest in northern Greenland.
But for companies, there were nevertheless good reasons to jump aboard on the project.
- From the start we were very lighted on the mission and the project, because we knew that we could help solve some of the vital challenges, such as Saga team would face.
- This holds in particular for the critical first phase, which had to be installed and built in for many hours each day, says Jan Lindbjerg, Market Manager at Bosch Powertools in Denmark.
At Bjerregaard, who has sent the polititestede sikkerhedsstøvler to Greenland, you see the project as a unique opportunity to get tested their products in reality.
- fundamentally, we see the project as one long test of our equipment. We would like to become even better, and together with the Saga Space Architects, we can just test, under extreme circumstances, " says Lasse Arvesen, sales manager at the Cox Security A/S.

The two entrepreneurs Sebastian Aristotelis and Karl-Johan Sørensen, must live isolated from the outside world in one of the planet's harshest climates. Here you must endure temperatures down to 30 degrees below zero and isvinde of the hurricane winds.
Their housing must be able to cope with challenges and to provide its two inhabitants with food, warmth and stimulus to combat the extreme monotony.
’We will understand on our own body, what exactly is important when you live in isolation under these extreme conditions. As architects we feel a responsibility for the future bosætteres health and well-being. Therefore, we have taken on the task to immerse ourselves totally in the issue,’ inform the architects.
Thing of the Space, Architects state that the vision is to create a home for the astronauts, who in the future will be sent to the moon.
