Jumping robot designed to explore space


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency introduces SpaceBok, a robot created by Swiss students for space exploration. 

Spacebok has been designed to potentially access new places on the Moon, Mars, or on asteroids.

The robot can jump on all four legs to navigate in low gravity environments.

Spacebok is currently being tested in the Automation and Robotics Laboratories (ARL) facilities at ESA’s ESTEC technical center in the Netherlands.
