The 2022 International SeaPerch Challenge
WELCOME TO SPACE EXPLORATION!
The 2022 SeaPerch Season was an exciting one! Much like the vacuum of space, the underwater environment presents many technical challenges teams faced. Underwater environments are used to replicate space during astronaut training and mission testing. Robots are becoming more common on the International Space Station (ISS) and astronauts perform a variety of tasks while aboard the ISS that are well suited for remotely operated and robotic support. The 2022 SeaPerch Challenge mission was inspired by these tasks.
To be clear, we did not send SeaPerch ROVs into space! This was all about underwater testing. The space environment was inspiration for team designs and a fun context for the mission course.
