A while back I posted about a NASA sponsored contest called Lunabotics Mining Competition open to colleges and universities. Lego and some other companies now have a similar contest called Moonbots.
Both are used to foster creativity and mine the community for ideas how to solve some of the challenges that are faced when travelling to other celestial orbs. I STILL want to get involved with this as I mentioned before, but on an adult level.
This video has been released showing some of the details of Moonbots. Man, I love this competition.
