Guest: Eric Homer, Ph. D., BYU Engineering Professor; David Allred, Ph. D., BYU Physics Professor  NASA hasn’t sent humans to Mars, yet, but we do have eyes on the Red Planet in the form of several robotic vehicles called “rovers.” In developing the next generation of Mars exploration machines, NASA might look to the next generation of engineers. Every year, teams of college students bring their own Mars Rover designs to compete in a sort of Olympics held in a remote part of Southern Utah.  BYU’s student engineers came in second place at the competition this year, hosted by the nonprofit “Mars Society.”
