“Time to Design It, Build It, Dig It!”
I am participating in NASA Robotic Mining event. My home university is one of the 50 registered colleges on the mission journey to Mars; I am very excited to document my experience.
The challenge is to mine the precious icy regolith (gravel). This water ice will provide oxygen, water and fuel for future off world colonists.
My main duties involves around software engineering but I am very excited to have hands on building my first robot along with mechanical and electrical engineers.
Competition date: May 14 – 18, 2018
Location: Kennedy Space Center, Florida
