NASA Chat: Student Teams Battle Lunar Terrain at NASA's 17th Annual Moonbuggy Race
NASA's 17th annual Great Moonbuggy Race is set for April 9-10 at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. There nearly 100 student teams from high schools, colleges and universities around the world will propel wheeled rovers of their own design around a simulated lunar landscape.
The Great Moonbuggy Race is organized annually by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, and has been hosted by the U.S. Space and Rocket Center since 1996.
NASA's Great Moonbuggy Race is one of dozens of educational programs and initiatives that Marshall leads each year to help attract and inspire America’s next generation of scientists, engineers and explorers -- those who will carry on the nation's mission of exploration in the decades to come.
On Tuesday, April 6 at 3:00 p.m. EDT, Marshall Center experts Dennis Gallagher and Durlean Bradford answered your questions about the moonbuggy race.
