GROVER goes to Greenland

From May 6 to June 8, 2013, GROVER was in Greenland. GROVER, the Goddard Remotely Operated Vehicle for Exploration and Research, also known as the Greenland Rover, was based at Summit Camp on the ice sheet of Greenland. NASA's Dr. Lora Koenig was working with two students from Boise State University, Gabriel Trisca and Mark Robertson, to evaluate the robot for polar research.

For those five weeks, Mark and Gabe worked to test GROVER's endurance in the subzero temperatures and biting winds. By the end of the trip, GROVER was working reliably enough for Dr. Hans-Peter Marshall of Boise State University to control the robot via satellite link from Idaho.
