Inaugural Lunabotics Mining Competition Goes Live With NASA EDGE
NASA EDGE, an award-winning agency talk show, will host a live webcast from the Lunabotics Mining Competition at 11 a.m. EDT on May 28 from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex's Astronaut Hall of Fame.
More than 20 university teams from around the country built remote-controlled or autonomous excavators, called lunabots, for the competition. NASA EDGE will take viewers behind the scenes as the teams prepare their robots for lunar excavation.
