York University Rover Team: 2009 Champions

In a remote area in the Utah desert, York undergraduate and graduate students captured first place in the 2009 University Rover Challenge. The York University Rover Team (YURT), comprised of science students from a variety of fields, took first place in a competition to design and build an exploration vehicle that is capable of functioning in the environmental conditions of Mars.
The annual competition is hosted by an organization of scientists and Mars enthusiasts known as the Mars Society. The purpose of the contest is to develop mobile units that could perform multiple  tasks on a Martian landscape; YURT posted high scores on all challenges, handily winning the competition.
Our Congratulations go out to all members of the York University Rover Team.
