Special OASIS visit to SeaLaunch

SeaLaunch has its Home Port in Long Beach, California. They’ve generously offered to fit us into their busy schedule for a members only trip. You must be a U.S. CITIZENS to tour the facility.

We have preliminary photos of the Rover that we’re studying for size and scope.

We will be constructing a full-size model of the rovers now en route to the Red Planet. The model will be remote controlled and able to roll for short distances. The concept includes videocameras and an articulated arm similar to that on the actual rovers. We will be taking the model to schools, lectures, and public events to help us publicize space activities. We need volunteers to help with the design, construction, and wiring of the model.
