How will future astronauts survive on distant planets? NASA is developing a variety of autonomous robots to build the infrastructure before humans even get there.

The Space Robotics Challenge, presented by BHP, focuses on virtually designing autonomous robotic operations to expand existing dexterous capabilities. Challenge participants will compete for a prize pool of up to $1 million, and winners will receive funding to continue research and discovery.

Registration for the Space Robotics Challenge is open. The qualifications rounds begin in March 2020 and last through October 2020.
