High school and college students representing 20 states and a number of different countries participated in the 2008 Great Moonbuggy Race last weekend. Competing at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala., entrants had to traverse a 0.7-mile course faster than any other team.
Team II from Erie High (Kans.) won the high school division, while a team from Evansville University won the college division. Teams had to navigate through and around craters, rocks, hardened lava ridges, inclines and lunar soil.
