NASA Spacebot, what massive eyes you’ve
Area is not precisely the most secure of locations for squishy meatbags like us, what with the shortage of environment and all. However when satellites in orbit break, someone’s received to repair them. That is why NASA is creating a robotic distant viewing system referred to as the VIPIR (Visible Inspection Poseable Invertebrate Robotic). It leverages an articulating borescope in addition to a zoom-lens digital camera to assist Earth-sure engineers troubleshoot exterior points aboard the ISS, launch automobiles and satellites. NASA is presently within the second part of operational testing with the VIPIR. Ultimately the area company hopes to ultimately pair these eyes with Dextre, Canada’s twin-armed spacebot that’s presently serving aboard the ISS.
