NASA Teams Up With Universities to Prep Robots for Space Exploration – NBC News

Two university groups have been selected to help upgrade NASA robots that could one day explore deep space and perhaps even Mars. Teams at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Northeastern University were awarded prototypes of NASA’s R5 humanoid robot for advanced research and development work. NASA originally designed the R5, a bipedal robot also known as Valkyrie, to aid in disaster relief. But the agency also envisioned that the R5 could some day be used in space missions, either performing tasks before humans arrive or working alongside the human crew.
