2019 FRC season

Deep Space Landscape

The 2019 FIRST DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE game, created in honor of the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon, involves two alliances of three teams each, with each team controlling a robot and performing specific tasks on a field to score points. To earn points, teams have to operate their robot to place Hatch Panels and Cargo pieces in a Rocket and Cargo Bay on the field. At the end of the game, robots have the chance to “climb” onto 3 different level platforms, the tallest being slightly under 2 feet tall. Read more on Wikipedia.
