This project came about as a to fix a problem of identifying the elemental composition of comets without having to spend massive amounts of money
What it does
Extract rare earth elements and sell the bulk material. The device makes use of an arduino for status updates.
How we built it
Arudino combined with 8020 aluminum to create a device that is capable of moving a magnet across the ground to pick up samples
Challenges we ran into
The structural integrity of the metal become an issue that was dealt with. Another issue was the combining of multiple interfaces into an IOT. Integrating the matlab and the webapp to take in the IOT information.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We collected several meteorites from the ocean. We created a website
What we learned
We learned how to combined multiple programming languages into one consist program
What's next for M.E.T.E.O.R
Be the world leader in collecting the elements
