The FIRST Robotics World Championship takes place April 22-25, 2015 at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis! This event brings together teams from around the world to compete in one of the largest robotics competitions.
For those that cannot make it to the event, NASA is proud to be webcasting eight competition fields which are taking place in the Edward Jones Dome.
NASA announced the selected Mars 2020 rover instruments Thursday at the agency's headquarters in Washington. Managers made the selections out of 58 proposals received in January from researchers and engineers worldwide. Proposals received were twice the usual number submitted for instrument competitions in the recent past. This is an indicator of the extraordinary interest by the science community in the exploration of the Mars. The selected proposals have a total value of approximately $130 million for development of the instruments.
