Test Result: Molecular Motor
IMG_3837.JPGWe've had several ideas we've been testing for the Molecular Motor. Unfortunately, we have had major problems turning, especially because this mission is so far away from base.  We have figured out that one of our turning problems is that our board was warped and uneven.  This has fixed it a little bit but we still have a problem on our hands. One possibility of the turning  is that we have too much weight on the front.  We hope to complete this mission soon and get on to other missions.
Test Name:  Molecular Motor
What we Learned:  The molecular motor is at an odd angle so that either way we approach it we have an interesting challenge to solve.
Challenges:  We are still having trouble with the turn, our arm is too long for this mission.
Next Action:  Figure out why our robot is turning funny and restructure the arm to solve this mission
