In eary 2008, a group of enthusiastic and crazy enough students decided to take up the challenge, and knocked to the RobCib doors for support. They didn’t look harmful, so we opened it. We didn’t know the crass mistake we were about to commit!
So here we are, fully immersed in this adventure, that took us to the Moon (or to some place with that looked alike!).
