Red Rover

Red Rover is a lunar lander being designed by Astrobotic in order to win Google's Lunar X prize. Red Rover is scheduled to be launched in May 2015.

I worked on Red Rover in the Fall of 2008. I was part of a two person team whose goal was to explore how the rotating mast would behave during use.

• Designed a functional mock-up of the mast and related components 

• Fabricated and assembled the mast prototype 

• Astrobotic used the protoype to ensure components would function properly in the rotating mast
