LCROSS Activity Day

If you are reading this site, you are probably interested in stuff related to the moon. If you are interested in stuff related to the moon, then you are super excited like us for the LCROSS impact event next friday morning (8/9/2009). If you haven’t heard of it, then you go better go read this: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LCROSS/overview/index.html

As some of you may know, Northrop Grumman was responsible for building the LCROSS spacecraft. All of the TerraEngineering team members work at Northrop Grumman. In fact, when LCROSS had that glitch in the IRU, Todd was one of the engineers that was part of the anomaly resolution.  (Needless to say the spacecraft is working great now).

Anyways, Northrop Grumman is having an LCROSS Activity Day (10/8/2009) on the main Space Park campus. They have asked us to demonstrate the BFD. We plan on bringing the arena and doing some mobility demonstrations on the pavement.  There should be a good turn out!

    I just wanted post a thank you to all our friends/coworkers/family that stopped by our demonstration at the LCROSS Activity Day. We hope you all had a good time seeing our robot in action (instead of just believing us!). And most importantly I want to thank the the LCROSS team for inviting us to the event. Finally, congrats to all the people who worked on LCROSS for their successful mission.
