-The mission of Apollo-NG is to be small and mobile Hackbase, so that any joining Hacker or Hacker-to-be can work with others ​on exciting projects, where we all can share fun, food, resources, knowledge ​and experience.+Apollo-NG is a mobile, self-sustainable,​ independent and highly-experimental [[mission:​start|Hackbase]], focused on research, development and usage of next-generation [[mission:​tech| open technology]] while visiting places without a resident, local Hackerspace, so that any joining Hacker or Hacker-to-be can get the opportunity to work together ​on exciting ​[[lab:​start|projects]] and to share fun, food, [[mission:resources|tools & resources]], knowledgeexperience ​and inspiration. Obviously someone has to fly the Odyssey, so it also has to serve as a mobile, tiny habitat for a nomadic hacker: The pilot.
  
-It also operates ​completely self-sustainable,​ to prove that even today the technology exists, to actually live and work in a tiny, independent off-grid environment,​ with absolutely minimal power consumption but without losing considerable comfort. Due to its mobile nature, it is also a very demanding experiment to evaluate “green” technology. ​All of this is documented in the [[lab:​|Lab]] and the [[mission:​log|Mission-Log]].+Operation needs to be completely self-sustainable,​ to prove that today the technology exists, to actually live and work in a tiny, independent off-grid environment,​ with absolutely minimal power consumption but without losing considerable comfort. Due to its mobile nature, it is also a very demanding experiment to evaluate “green” technology. ​Everything ​is public and documented in the [[lab:​|Lab]] and the [[mission:​log|Mission-Log]] and also a great real-world, hardcore-testbed for the products, we have asked to get from our [[support:​sponsors|Sponsors & Supporters]].
