How do you get a robot buggy from Earth to the surface of Mars in one piece and then drive around without crashing?
This drop-in workshop will explore each of the challenges involved with the opportunity to create your own solutions and try them out.
You’ll follow in the footsteps of the makers of Martian rovers Sojourner, Spirit, Opportunity, Curiosity, Perseverance and Zhurong. Your Chief Engineer for the mission will be Simon Holbeche of Bath Astronomers
Drop-in anytime between 10:30 and 12:30, no booking needed.
