Currently, the team has decided to challenge themselves with something greater than just landing a rover to Mars. This ultimate challenge comes with moving a Lander with its destination being the moons of Saturn and Jupiter. However, they could not do that alone as they needed to come up with efficient strategies of designing and manufacturing landers that will be moving from planet to planet. To do so, they found it wise to team up with the Autodesk. In addition to that, the partnership with the Autodesk paid off since they came up with a concept Lander that the public knew about on Tuesday, at the Autodesk University in Las Vegas. The lander was on a bas...
