Description

Spheres robots on the International Space Station. The volleyball-sized satellites have their own power, propulsion and navigation systems and are used in an international competition for secondary-school students.

Each year a tournament is held where students earn points by writing control algorithms to operate the spheres and by choosing the best tactics to win the game.
