NASA Desert RATS

Our prize for winning the RASCAL Robo-Ops competition was to attend NASA’s 2011 Desert RATS in the high desert of Northern Arizona.  The trip was a lot of fun and a great learning opportunity, we got to talk to a lot of NASA engineers about both their systems and ours.  We were even lucky enough to get to take one of the NASA Space Exploration Vehicles for a test drive.  Our rover was definitely a favorite amongst the families on public day, many kids go the opportunity to drive it.  Overall the trip was very fun and helped us develop an even better understanding of the need for this project. Please take a minute and watch our Desert RATS video!
