The Mars Society is pleased to announce that Relativity Space, a Los Angeles-based aerospace company, has joined the growing ranks of official sponsors of our University Rover Challenge (URC), the world’s premier Mars robotics competition for college students held annually at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah.
Relativity is at the forefront of software-defined manufacturing, using 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and autonomous robotics to revolutionize how rockets are built and flown. The company intends to develop the world’s first entirely 3D-printed rocket and also print and launch the first rocket made on the planet Mars.
Relativity will be joining a number of other major sponsors of URC, including Protocase, Symbotic and Mastercam, to ensure that our efforts to promote STEM education via the rover challenge will continue for the foreseeable future.
