The Lunar Explorers Society (Lunex) handed out the "Best Young Lunar Explorers Paper Award" for 2007 during the 9th International Conference on Exploration and Utilization of the Moon (ICEUM9), to a team from the 2007 Alpbach Summer School program.

The paper was awarded the 'Best Young Lunar Explorers Paper Award' because of the clarity of the presentation and the originality of the proposed mission concept.
