Moon Research Investigating Dust Expulsion Removal Systems

"Moon Research Investigating Dust Expulsion Removal Systems (Moon RIDERS) is an educational project partnering Hawaii high school students with NASA, Google Lunar XPRIZE teams, and the Pacific International Space Center for Exploration Systems, which is a project of the Japan-U.S. Science, Technology and Space Applications Program of the University of Hawaii at Hilo Department of Physics and Astronomy, to develop and implement real-life lunar surface experiments. The test is hosted by NASA's Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute, headquartered at Ames. The students are testing a hardware system developed in conjunction with Kennedy Space Center in Florida to remove lunar dust. The system uses high voltage square waves to ripple dust away from the surface."
