MARS2013, first week: rover arrives to Morocco, team arrives to the new MCC

Since our last report, the Puli rover has safely arrived to the MARS2013 test field and completed its first runs. Although we have two team members on site to escort it, the rover is controlled remotely from the Mission Control Center, located at the City Hall of Budapest. We are delighted to report that the first runs were a great success!

The Puli rover is on its way to Mars

The Puli rover prototype is checked, packaged, and on its way to Mars - or rather the quite realistic Mars simulation experiment organized by the Austrian Space Forum. Our I2 rover will navigate an area of the Moroccan part of the Sahara during the simulation as if it were Mars, while other participants will be testing space suit simulators and other equipment for a future manned mission to our planetary neighbor. The simulation will take place in February, which is why all instruments are already collected and packaged, and are currently being shipped in cargo containers across the Mediterranean sea. Once the rover "lands" in the target area, Team Puli Space members will direct its actions from the the mission control center in Budapest like a real Mars mission.

Team Hungarobots from Sopron, Hungary, was found best by the jury in the 2012 Google Lunar X PRIZE LEGO Mindstorms Challenge. The high school student team of five and the Puli affiliate team leader made an excellent video on the future of the equipment left on the lunar surface by previous Moon missions, and secured their first place by building a LEGO robot capable of completing a complex Moon mission simulation. As the grand prize, the team can enjoy a four day trip to Hawaii, and a guided tour to various NASA facilities.
