Announcement: Rover Competition 2017-18

After the fantastic success of the inaugural Lunar Rover Competition last year, UKSEDS are proud to announce the Lunar Rover Competition 2017 – 18. We are inviting teams to design, build and test small rovers with the objective of driving into a crater, collecting a sample and returning to a lander.

The competition will demonstrate to students the space engineering process, and culminates in a competition day at the site of one of our partners, RALSpace. Passing the final review unlocks up to funding for your rover, kindly provided by our lead sponsor Thales Alenia Space UK.

Registration for the competition is now open, and will close on 31st October 2017. Check out for the new rules, and the form to enter the competition.
