First-Time Student Rover-Makers Place 7th

The University of Saskatchewan’s Space Design Team finished in 7th place in the University Rover Challenge. The contest, run by the Mars Society, featured an international field of 31 student-led teams competing to demonstrate how robots and astronauts will work together when exploring Mars. This was U of S’ first year in the rover contest, making the team’s performance all the more surprising, reports Saskatoonhomepage.
