Light Racers at the Spaceward Games 2007

Great Light Racers Championship
One of the new events at the Spaceward Games this year was the Light Racers Championship.

Aimed at students, the teams compete in solving a real NASA lunar exploration problem: building a rover that can operate in a permanently shadowed area of the moon. Several teams competed and at last report at least one team won some of the prize money. These image and video are courtesy Ted Semon at the Space Elevator Blog.
