NASA is hosting its Fourth Annual Lunabotics Mining Competition at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex May 20-24, 2013. International competitors from 50 universities have created unique and innovative solutions that NASA may one day use for an actual lunar excavation device or payload. Teams from Case Western Reserve University, Miami University, the University of Akron, and West Virginia University will be competing, and they deserve our support!
These science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students are our future scientists, astronauts, engineers, physicists, and entrepreneurs. Visit the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and marvel as the Lunabots mine “moon dirt” in a race against the clock.
