I had my own small part to play in the Mars Rover, as my team and I participated in the 2019/20 SpaceChallenge.tech (run by NASA/JPL) to create a reinforcement learning algorithm so that the Open Source Rover (based on Curiosity/Perseverance) could navigate Mars without hitting obstacles. It wasn't the Mars Helicopter, but it was still pretty cool. It helped me meet a few interesting people (and make connections) and it's formed a part of my team's current project, which is based around citizen science and gaming.

The code for the challenge: github.com/EXYNOS-999/AWS_JPL_OSR_DRL
My github handle: github.com/gizmotronn

Nicely written article as well, btw
