The purpose of this project is to partly fulfill one of the 2015 RASC-AL themes by using a combination of concepts utilized in kinematics and dynamics of machinery. The main concept that needs to be utilized is linkages, but another concept heavily used in this project is gears. Keeping this in mind, the different themes were considered for a project objective. Out of the four themes, two were heavily based on architecture for living spaces, one for increasing landing payloads, and one for exploring Mars’ moons. The theme that most applied to the concepts utilized became apparent, exploring a moon of Mars. For the project we decided to narrow the scope of this project significantly by concentrating only on sample collecting once already landed on one of the moons.
