NASA's 4th Lunabotics Mining Competition

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 11:32 AM

Today we had the awesome opportunity to go up to Kennedy Space Center to
play with and program LEGO robots and to see the Lunabotics robots that various college students have created from all over the world.

The boys had the opportunity to program their robot that they named MK42Discovery, it laughed, and it rolled.  They had to program it to move a meter and find out how many rotations per second they had to allow it to go before allowing it to turn around and go back another meter.  

After our class we went into an area to see the robots created by the college kids.  
The object is to create a robot that will collect 10 kg of moon dirt within 10 minutes.
At least that is what the college kids told me.
