JPL Is Doing Some Crazy Stuff

So The Verge recently went to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to see what those nerds are up to. Let me just say the stuff they are working on is crazy. Things I’d never considered:

  1. There is a 20 minute delay to send signals to robots in space.
  2. How do you drill when there is little-to-no gravity?

To me the video starts to get really interesting at 7:12: the Microspine wheel, which is a wall / rock climbing robot.

Check out the video below to find out more.
