Baden-Württemberg 1

Baden-Württemberg 1 (BW1) is a proposed lunar mission spacecraft.[1] The mission was led by the Technical University of Stuttgart.[2] The basic design was for a cubical spacecraft 1 meter on a side, with a mass of about 200 kg (441 lb).[3] It may use an electric propulsion system utilizing polytetrafluoroethylene PTFE.[1] Work is ongoing and by 2013 work on trajectories was being done.[4]

Baden-Württemberg 1 was part of the Stuttgart Small Satellite Program initiated in 2002 that included FLYING LAPTOP, PERSEUS, CERMIT, and the aforementioned BW-1.[3]
