What: Results and photos from NASA’s 8th annual “Great Moonbuggy Race”
will be posted to the Marshall Space Flight Center’s Newsroom Web site.

Who: More than 50 high school and college teams compete against the clock
to assemble a human-powered moonbuggy. A two-member coed team races it over
a half-mile course at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala.
High school teams race Friday, and college teams compete Saturday.

When: Results and photos will go up shortly after the competition
concludes on both days.

Friday, April 6 early evening

Saturday, April 7 early evening

Why: The race challenges students to design and build a human-powered
vehicle so they will learn how to deal with real-world engineering problems
— similar to those faced by the original Marshall Center moonbuggy team.
That group was in charge of design, development and testing of the lunar
roving vehicle in the 1960s and 1970s.
