Disclaimer: The Zero Robotics SPHERES Challenge competition is the second annual event. It is a growing program, with active development by MIT, NASA, and our partners. Participants should expect continuous support, but also might experience technical difficulties as we build our infrastructure.
ISS Disclaimer: The finals competition aboard the ISS depends on availability of astronaut time. While every effort will be made by MIT and NASA to maintain the proposed schedule, unforeseen events at NASA or the ISS might delay or cancel the ISS finals..
