    Cynthia, Marion - have a look at this: I assume that this also affects our model, correct?
  •  
    And I suppose they will (or already have) modify their GCM to take this in account...

Jumping beats moonwalking - for a virtual robot - space - 18 December 2010 - New Scientist - 1 views

  •  
    "They found that while the robot can leap to a height of 1.5 metres, such leaps put stresses on the robot's legs that make it more likely to fall over. Leaping to 0.8 metres improved stability but reduced the robot's maximum running speed. Future simulations will determine the precise trade-off between speed and stability."

Japan Plans a Moon Base by 2020, Built by Robots for Robots | Popular Science - 1 views

  • Those initial surveyor bots will pave the way for the construction of the unmanned moon base near the lunar south pole, which the robots will construct for themselves.
  • Even if Japan falls short of its 2020 deadline, the advances in robotics technology that could fall out of this little project could be as exciting as the moon base itself.

A Cyborg Space Race - 1 views

  • There is more discussion in the space community on how to alter entire planets to suit humans - a process called "terraforming" - than there is on changing man to suit space.
  • making the machines our "avatars" for space exploration
  • Perhaps a brain implant linking us to our robots would be the next step in space exploration, greatly reducing communication time across the vast expanse of space

Draper MIT Students Test Lunar Hopper with Eyes on Prize | SpaceNews.com - 0 views

  • The testing of the second-generation lunar hopper is being carried out under the supervision of engineers from the nearby Draper Laboratory with an eye toward competing for the Google Lunar X Prize in 2012.
  • Although planetary rovers are not new, the hopper concept could add a new dimension to robotic planetary exploration, one that Tuohy said could inspire a new generation of engineers, technologists and scientists.
