NASA has challenged undergraduate and graduate student teams to design and build an excavator that could be used on the moon. Over 20 university teams are scheduled to compete in the NASA Lunabotics Mining Competition at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Join the NASA EDGE team for a behind-the-scenes look as teams prepare their robots for lunar excavation. The NASA EDGE live webcast will broadcast on Friday, May 28, 2010, at 11 a.m. EDT. The webcast can be viewed on USTREAM at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-edge3
