In July of 2012, NASA came to the Big Island of Hawai’i for an analog test to simulate rovers in a moon-like environment on Mauna Kea.
At the end of the test, the rovers were brought to the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center on the campus of the University of Hawai’i at Hilo for a public outreach event. Here, people of all ages were able to interact with equipment that was used during the test, and learn about what went on during the test.
