Mars machine lands professional engineers team on top Purdue News Service

The sky was the limit for the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers’ “Mission to Mars” today as they captured first place in the 20th annual Theta Tau Fraternity’s Rube Goldberg Machine Contest at Purdue University. Drawing inspiration collected from trips to science museums and watching the Learning Channel, the 10-member team hoisted the U.S. flag over a simulated mini-Martian landscape to the strains of “Thus Spake Zarathustra” and Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away.”
