The LSU Rover Team was honored today at the State Capitol as part of Thursday's NASA day.

LSU's Rover Team made headlines in April at NASA's Rover Challenge in Alabama. LSU engineers from across the country were challenged to build a human-powered rovers from scratch. LSU's squad ended up placing 6th in the world, and 3rd in the United States.

An astronaut from NASA honored the team for their accomplishments.

The team hopes that they can continue the tradition for years to come.
