Today is the launch day of learning this years 2019 FRC challenge and it was a blast. We already knew it was space themed but nothing more. This year we have to go to space and cover our spaceship and cargo ship with hatch panels then fill them with cargo. Starting out there is a dust storm and you cant see so your robot has to either be autonomous or you have to control it from a camera. There is one cargo hold and 2 rockets per team. 40 points total for cargo ship and 30 points total for rocket complete. 2 points per hatch panel and 3 per cargo plus 3 points across the line and 6 to start on level two. Today we will set up teams to work on planning different parts of the robot so we can make a robot that will hold up and do better than everyone else while being on time so we can test it.

Let's have a great winning year!
