Penn State Lunar Lion team members Michael Welch, left, and Alwin Paul examined a quadcopter test stand assembly during a team meeting. The quadcopter model assists the team in determining pitch and roll measurements for the creation of the Lunar Lion spacecraft. The goal of the team is to measure their designs against some of the world's rising stars in space exploration and to land and operate a robotic spacecraft on the Moon by 2015.
