Ukrainian inventors win NASA Audience Choice Competition
Ukrainian team designed and developed boost-glide vehicle Mars Hopper
The team found out about their victory three days before the official posting of the results, but NASA representatives asked to keep it in secret, ain.ua reports.
"I hope we gained NASA's attention with our project. We would like Ukraine to join this organization. We expected it while creating the project. Ukraine has all the necessary technologies to implement it. It would be great if our state took its place among the space countries", - explained the engineer of the project Alexandr Butkalyuk.
The team plans to construct two prototypes of their invention for ground and stratospheric tests. They shared their intentions with the agency and are waiting for the answer.
Moreover they are preparing for the trip to Cape Canaveral for the rocket launch scheduled on September 8. But the team is not sure whether they will be able to go there in a full strength. They will have to pay for the whole trip, because NASA provides only the bus to the control center.
