Part-Time Scientists

One year of Rocket Science!

The Part-Time Scientists is an international team of Scientists and Engineers participating in the first private race to the moon, the Google Lunar X-Prize. Our approach to win this competition is quite unique as everyone involved really is a part-time scientist.

In our presentation we will present our latest lunar rover, lander, electronic and communications developments.

The presentation will feature:

  • our self developed embedded systems,
  • how we designed radiation hardened and fault tolerant systems,
  • the production of our second rover generation and their first tests,
  • our prototype real world testings,
  • what we've done in 2010,
  • what we've planning for 2011,

and a lot more interesting topics!

Our presentation will be focused on actual hardware with a rather short introduction to the topic in general.
