Last week we had the pleasure of speaking with the five winners of the Exploring Hell Challenge. In this ideation challenge, innovators were tasked with designing a mechanical obstacle avoidance sensor to help the Automaton Rover for Extreme Environments (AREE) explore the brutally harsh surface of Venus.
572 entries were received from over 80 countries, and NASA found many of them to be outstanding. But the five winning submissions really stood apart from the rest. Be sure to watch this recording of the Exploring Hell Webinar as we talk with the NASA sponsors and pick the brains of our winners.
Thank you to everyone who participated, and congratulations once again to our winners!
