Posted: February 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

So I just started surgery and by that I mean the engineers are taking apart my wiring to see what’s going on with my electronics.  Finally!!!

So apparently some of the surgeons supposed to fix me up left some tools out so I was all chained up for a while… =( It was really lonely.   Luckily it got sorted out and the groups getting together again tonight in a few minutes!!! Yay!!!  I’m really excited to see what they have come up with for me and I can’t wait to get the process on its way.   I hear rumors that I may even go visit some schools later in the semester…I love kids!
I’ll let you guys know what I hear after the meeting.

Starting to get Surgery!

Hello world!

My name is Ros.E and I’m a rover that was created at the University of Maryland last year with the intention of winning a super awesome competition down in Houston.  Guess who it was sponsored by….yeah, NASA!!! How cool is that? Anyway, I came in third last year and I’m trying to do better this year so this team of “Aero Surgeons” are helping me out and making me look real good for the competition 😉   You can find me in the SSL laboratory on campus if you ever want to say Hi!  I’m all lonely, these guys in here just use other machines and walk past me…I really miss my group =(

Anyways, enough pouting.  They’re coming back on Wednesday and I’m really excited!  I was taken apart on Saturday and now I’m just hanging out in pieces so I’m hoping they come back and are ready to go.   Keep checking back for updates, I’ll let you know how it’s going.

Live long and prosper!
