Here's a blurb from the NASATelevision USTREAM page:
The 18th Annual Great Moonbuggy Race will be held April 1 - 2, 2011 in Huntsville, Alabama, at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Students are required to design a vehicle that addresses a series of engineering problems that are similar to problems faced by the original Moonbuggy team.This is great and I'm not sure why I haven't heard of this before, but thanks to the Internet, I'm now in the know. If you're interested in more of what the race involves, here's another quote from the USTREAM page:
Each Moonbuggy will be human powered and carry two students, one female and one male, over a half-mile simulated lunar terrain course including "craters", rocks, "lava" ridges, inclines and "lunar" soil.If you have a chance, check out the race online. It's a lot of fun to watch.
