2019 FIRST Destination: Deep Space
FIRST DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE - The Game
In FIRST Destination: Deep Space, presented by The Boeing Company, two alliances compete to fill two rockets and a cargo ship on their respective sides. Before the match begins, alliances are able to choose to preload their cargo ship with either hatch panels or cargo pods. At the start of the match, the sandstorm period arrives which limits driver visibility and requires teams to utilize autonomous code or have human drivers operate their robots through video footage from their stations. Teams are able to score points throughout the match by deploying robots from the habitat, preparing the rockets and cargo ship with hatch panels, loading the rockets and cargo ship with cargo pods, and returning safely to the habitat. The alliance with the highest score at the end of the match wins!
