About This Project
Building an Excavating Martian Robot that can be used for Utilizing Resources on Extraterrestrial Locations
NASA missions to Mars have found ice water and other beneficial resources on Mars. Capturing these resources are the key to allow humans to “live off the land” or, in scientific terms, in situ resource utilization(ISRU). But first these resources must be excavated. Our team is building a robot that would be completely autonomous and would be able to traverse martian land. It would excavate resources that would be beneficial to the astronauts.
