Rhodes Physics Students Compete in NASA′s Great Moon Buggy Race

Rhodes physics students have two entries in NASA′s 20th Great Moon Buggy Race. Students are competing in heats today (April 26) and tomorrow at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Last year, Rhodes won the coveted "Rookie of the Year" award and is back this year with two improved designs and dedicated student drivers to tackle the 20 obstacles in record time. This is a great test of engineering design and construction, physical fitness, teamwork, and perseverance.

Rhodes teams are numbers 34 and 35 out of 100. Watch live athttp://moonbuggy.msfc.nasa.gov/video_test.html
