Project: CU Stationary Lunar Diggers

Team Abstract: GOPHER's unique approach involves incorporating as many off-the-shelf and widely used components as possible. Additionally, GOPHER reflects the team's commitment to heritage designs. Our bucket ladder excavation system drew inspiration from industrial mining, as well as the NASA Lunabotics competition. Finally, GOPHER has the unique capability of changing its digging location to avoid obstacles.
