    About This Project

    One of the most dangerous aspects of Lunar and Martian exploration is having to deal with the abrasive dust, known as regolith. Our research hopes to reduce some of the harmful effects of regolith on astronauts and robotic explorers by seeing how the dust reacts when different cones impact a lunar dust bed in microgravity. We will perform our experiment through the NASA Microgravity University aboard the ZeroG Vomit Comet.
    Blast off!
