University Rover Challenge continued ...

... but no word yet on the results. Nevertheless, here's more on the Mars Society University Rover Challenge that was held yesterday.

First up, there are pictures from the Daily Herald of BYU student team setup at a media briefing here and here and here.

Here's another article with a picture of the BYU rover from at the Mars Society Mars Desert Research Station from the day of the challenge. It includes some details about the BYU rover instruments and some comments by Kevin Sloan, who is running the challenge.

The Daily Herald also has a video news report about the BYU team and the tasks they will need to perform at the challenge.

Youtube has a video of the Penn State rover from the Penn State Mars Society.
