This week we are learning to test our tires to maximize the competition capabilities of our planetary explorers. The better the traction the more force we can convey, and the more energy is transferred. You know that different environments (dirt, slick, concrete, etc.) need different tire designs, but what if the environment was another planet? Research the surfaces of one of the terrestrial planets, describe that surface here and then decided on the best tire type for a planetary explorer. Be sure to explain why you decided on this type of tire!
