Move over R2-D2! Robots in space are no longer just the stuff of science fiction but have become an integral component of space expeditions.


Extreme space environments are dangerous for humans and robots are best suited for exploring the hostile environment of space. Robotic missions can travel further and faster, and can return more scientific data than human missions. Robots have, and will continue to contribute to our comprehension of the Universe.


This lecture will look at the International Space Station's indispensable limb, the robotic Canadarm2 and the ExoMars Rover planned for exploring Mars.
