Group Description

Off-road racing is just so… terrestrial.

Off-world racing is the name of the game at NASA's annual Great Moonbuggy Race. Student teams from around the globe gather in Huntsville, Ala., to propel wheeled lunar rovers of their own design across a simulated moonscape that's like no other race course on Earth.

Nearly 100 student teams from around the globe will drive their specially crafted lunar rovers through a challenging course of rugged, moon-like terrain at NASA's 17th annual Great Moonbuggy Race in Huntsville, Ala., April 9-10. More than 1,000 high school, college and university students from 19 states and Puerto Rico, Canada, Germany, Serbia, India and Romania are registered to race at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

To get in the spirit, here are some of our favorite images from over the years. Ladies and gentlemen...start your buggies!
