NASA testing lunar robot in Northern Arizona

NASA's K10 lunar robot [right, credit NASA] will be roaming around the Black Point Lava Flow in Northern Arizona next week but the robot recon will be operated remotely from the NASA Lunar Science Institute at Ames Research Center at Moffett Field in California.

The test procedures are designed to plan field work by astronauts driving the "Lunar Electric Rover" when we return to the Moon.

  1. Thanks for the Head's Up, Lee. I had heard a rumor of the Desert Rats out that way, but almost no hard news, until, that is, you posted notice. Some people have all the fun!
