Before humans set foot on another world, it’s often robots who reach the planet first.
At Statler College, we are pushing the field of space exploration forward by developing
robots that can perform highly advanced and technical tasks. Our researchers are
improving autonomous robot functions of the Mars rover to support future Mars Sample
Return Missions, creating robotic capabilities for in-space assembly of satellite
servicing, and building swarms of ballooning spider-inspired probes that can perform
in-situ measurements of planetary atmospheres.
