Join the competition to design, build and deliver small satellites capable of advanced operations near and beyond the Moon. NASA’s Centennial Challenges program sponsors the Cube Quest Challenge in which university and private developer teams are eligible to win part of a $4.5 million prize purse. Teams compete in one of two arenas: the Lunar Derby where CubeSats are to maintain a verifiable lunar orbit and the Deep Space Derby where CubeSats reach approximately 1.8 million miles from Earth.

Shoot for the Moon and Beyond With Cube Quest Challenge (University Students)

NASA is inviting additional teams to compete in the Cube Quest Challenge. You can still participate in the in-space phase of the challenge and be eligible to win part of a $4.5 million prize purse.

Sally Ride EarthKAM allows participants to take pictures of Earth from space using a camera aboard the International Space Station. Use EarthKAM as a teaching tool to study subjects ranging from geography to art to meteorology. During the July 14-17, 2020 mission, you can learn how the system works and to start planning ways to incorporate EarthKAM into the school year. Register to participate now.

This summer, the Mars 2020 rover, Perseverance, will launch to explore the Red Planet. Perseverance has six wheels that will help the rover drive across the Martian terrain. How might wheels for future Mars rovers look? Students can design a rover wheel and then send their ideas. Students can create a digital 3D model or a sketch of the reinvented wheel and write a short description of the design. Out-of-this world entries will receive a NASA gold star in the challenge gallery. Due July 26.
