Escape Velocity. Mission 11 from FIRST LEGO League 2018 Into Orbit Challenge

Background

Soon after a launch, rocket engines often separate away from spacecraft by design, but that’s long before the spacecraft leaves the pull of gravity. So why doesn’t the spacecraft fall back to earth?

Mission

The robot needs to impact the strike pad hard enough to keep the spacecraft from dropping back down.

Scores

  • Get the spacecraft to go so fast and high that it stays up, by pressing/hitting the strike pad: 24
  • Possible scores: 0, 24

Scoring Requirements

  • The result must be visible at the end of the match.
  • Activate the spacecraft by pressing/hitting the strike pad. > Only allowed method. Must be observed by the referee.
