Welcome to FIRST-Destination: Deep Space

FIRST® Destination: Deep Space, the 2019 FIRST® Robotics Competition game, presented by the Boeing Company, includes two alliances of astronauts preparing to head into the outer limits of space.

The 2019 First Robotics Competition season has officially begun! 

In DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE, Presented by The Boeing Company, two competing alliances collect samples on Planet
Primus. Unpredictable terrain and weather patterns make remote robot operation essential to their mission on the planet. With only 2:30 until
liftoff, the alliances must gather as many cargo pods as possible and prepare their spaceships before the next sandstorm arrives.

T–2:30: A Sandstorm limits driver visibility
so robots independently follow preprogrammed instructions or are operated
by human drivers via video from their
HABITAT(HAB). Alliances score points by:
1. Deploying robots from HAB
2. Preparing rockets and cargo
ship with hatch panels
3. Loading cargo pods into their
rockets and cargo ship

T–2:15: The sandstorm clears and human
operators take control of their robots.
Alliances continue to score points by:
1. Preparing rockets and cargo
ship with hatch panels
2. Loading more cargo pods
3. Returning the robot safely to the alliance’s HAB

0:00: Rocket liftoff
The alliance with the highest score
at the end of the match wins.
