Hot Topic Exploration Robotics & A.I.
Autonomous Rover Drills Underground in the Atacama
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: A rover named Zoë recently traveled to the dry, harsh terrain of Chile's Atacama Desert. Equipped with a drill, cameras, spectrometers and other sensors, Zoë spent two weeks analyzing the soil from above and below the surface, providing valuable data for future missions to Mars.

Mars 2020 Dry Run
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: This month, astrobiologists supported by the ASTEP program have traveled to Chile's Atacama desert with a rover named Zoe. For four weeks, Zoe will study geology and soil samples in order to test instruments that could one day help search for signs of past or present life on Mars.

Tiny Submersible Could Search for Life in Europa's Ocean
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: Someday, a tiny submarine barely larger than two soda cans could be one of the first visitors to Jupiter's icy moon Europa.

NASA Rover to Explore Greenland Ice Sheet
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: From May 3 through June 8, 2013, NASA will be testing the newest scientific rover in the highest part of Greenland. GROVER will collect data that will help scientists understand changes in the massive ice sheet.

Evolving Biological Networks in Computers
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: Scientists have simulated 25,000 generations of evolution within computers, providing new insight into the evolution of complexity. The study could also have implications for the future of artificial intelligence.

Do We Live in a Computer Simulation?
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: A team of physicists has come up with a potential test to determine whether or not the universe we live in might in fact be a computer simulation.

Robot Could Explore Moon Caverns
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: A robot that has been exploring a coal mine pit in Pennsylvania could be rappelling into holes on the Moon in the future.

Skin, Heal Thyself
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: By emulating human skin, engineers have constructed the first material that can both sense subtle pressure and heal itself when torn or cut.

Could the Next Rover Come From Canada?
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: The Canadian Space Agency, well known for robotics, is building five new rover prototypes for future lunar and Mars missions.

Robot Tuna
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: Inspired by tuna, a new unmanned underwater vehicle could help researchers explore harsh, aqueous environments.
