About The Project:
In our experiment, a setup, inspired from Cerchar Abrasivity Test, will determine the abrasiveness of lunar soil at the touchdown location. The properties of the soil play an important role in determining the durability of a structure built on it. Due to high frequency of sandstorms there, we need a strong structure for our stay and on site labs. This experiment would help us in developing containers to contain samples for further studies as well as in designing of equipment for use on moon.
