This paper summarizes the objectives, . current status and future thrusts of technology development in planetary robotics at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, under sponsorship by the NASA Office of Space Science. The major overarching goal of this thrust is to enable exciting in-situ exploration missions to planets, . comets, and asteroids currently in planning by NASA into the 21st Century. This is done in support of the Space Science quests [1] to understand the origin of life, its existence… CONTINUE READING
