The 6th European Rover Challenge (ERC), an international competition to design and build a Mars rover, will be held at the Kielce University of Technology (PSK), in south-central Poland, on September 11-13, 2020.
The Impuls team Kielce University of Technology beat off competition from 40 other teams from around the world, including America’s Stanford University.
Thirty-six teams from ten countries have been selected as finalists to compete at the 2019 University Rover Challenge (URC), held May 30 - June 1 at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) in Utah. Poland will be represented by as many as eight teams.
The Kielce University rover adds its competition-winning weight to the Polish space race.
Poland is getting increasingly involved in space research, most notably in the development and construction of Mars rovers.
