NASA is already planning their 2020 mission. Based on Curiosity’s success, they are planning on sending out a very similar rover but with improved capabilities as explained in the […]

The Mars Curiosity Mission is by far one of the most important robotic achievements of all times. Today, we got the first 360 degrees panorama from the rover and it is quite stunning. See it for yourself over at 360cities.net. Needless to say, NASA is very proud of their achievement and they have been showing-off lots of videos and […]

Not many robots enjoy full autonomy; humans often prefer to supervise them and make sure they are doing their job right. However, there are some situations where direct supervision is impossible. For instance, when sending robots to explore space, the communication latency increases as they get farther away from us, which makes it impossible to […]

As shown in the video below, the human astronauts had a big surprise when they finally opened the storage crate that contains the humanoid robot.

One small step for a robot… We’ll let you figure out the rest. Robonaut 2, a.k.a. R2 for short, was developed by NASA and GM in order to help humans perform their job, whether it is on the ISS or down on earth. This robot became the first, but certainly not the last, humanoid robot in space when Mission STS-133 […]

NASA has confirmed that the robot built with General Motors will be sent to the International Space Station (ISS) in the fall of 2010 on board the Discovery space shuttle during the STS-133 […]
