Meet the Winners of the Honey I Shrunk the NASA Payload Challenge

Join us on August 6th at 10:00 AM PDT

The Challenge: Imagine a rover the size of your Roomba®crawling the moon’s surface. These small rovers developed by NASA and commercial partners provide greater mission flexibility and allow NASA to collect key information about the lunar surface.

However, existing science payloads are too big, too heavy, and require too much power for these rovers and new, miniaturized payload designs are needed. Payloads need to be similar in size to a new bar of soap to fit cleanly inside the rover (maximum external dimensions: 100mm x 100mm x 50mm).

NASA launched the $160,000 Honey, I Shrunk the NASA Payload Challenge seeking ideas for a mini payload to make lunar exploration more effective.

Join HeroX, NASA and the winners of the 1st place winners of the challenge for a moderated panel discussion to learn about NASA’s crowdsourcing experience from start to finish.
