Cratering the Moon Challenge
Preliminary Designs

Challenge: As junior engineers, the student task is to design and build a small-scale, Earth-based launching
device that can propel a standard projectile at various angles, creating a crater in “lunar soil.”
Then, using the launching device, the students will conduct an experiment to determine the angle of
impact that excavates the greatest amount of subsurface “lunar soil.” For more information on the challenge, see: http://quest.nasa.gov/challenges/lcross/Cratering_the_Moon_v1.pdf

See Final Designs as they come in.
