What is the URC?
”URC” is an acronym for the Mars Society’s international, collegiate competition, the University Rover Challenge, that takes place annually near the Mars Desert Research Station. The goal of the challenge is to have students create a mock rover that can on day aid human inhabitants of Mars. There are 4 tasks that each team must complete: Extreme Delivery Retrieval, Equipment Servicing, Autonomous Traversal, and a Science Mission.
