Lunar Lander Crash Test #2522

This is a discussion for the Installing the Lunar Lander Crash Test Experiment. Feel free to connect with the Learning Team here, or to discuss experiment tips, ask questions, leave comments or suggest experiment variations here.

This is a last second question - my kits do not have an SD Logger (yet). Is it possible to do this experiment while connected to the laptop with the USB cable? Obviously we would not be able to drop it very far.

What a great question! Yes this experiment can be done using the USB cable! The longer the cable, the farther you can drop it. The only problem I see is that the cable might become unplugged during the drop or impact. But that can be avoided by making sure the cable is tightly plugged in to the arduino and the computer before it is dropped.

We would love to see pictures when you test your Lunar Lander!
