USST celebrates rover competition placement

Members of the University of Saskatchewan Space Design Team (USST) had their sights set on finishing in the middle of pack at this year’s University Rover Challenge (URC) so they were ecstatic to find themselves finishing seventh out of 31 teams. 

"For our first year in the competition, the team did very well," said Justin Gerein, USST president. The URC is an international robotics event at the Mars Research Station outside of Hanksville, Utah in which student-built rovers are put through five different challenges.
