NASA’s New Flying Robots Will Be Busy Bees

(Music) NASA’s new class of flying robots will be busy bees when they get to work on the Space Station. Called Astrobee, these next-generation robots use electric fans to fly. They will help researchers develop and test new technology in zero gravity. The three cube-shaped robots are named Honey, Bumble, and Queen. Designed for use inside Station, Astrobees navigate, dock and recharge themselves. The robots can perform many routine chores and tasks. They can operate on their own or be controlled by astronauts in space and researchers on the ground. Designed to be modular, Astrobee can test new attachments and software applications. Astrobee will replace NASA’s SPHERES robots that have been working on the Space Station for over a decade. This technology is useful for future missions to the Moon, Mars and other deep space destinations. (Music)

  1. Here are the questions about the origins of life 4 billion years ago
    Life is a living cell such as bacteria, algae and multicellular organisms
    First question: How was the first cell information formed on the ground?

    There are two types of DNA namely RNA and DNA deficient oxygen
    The question is who is formed first and how was the second acid created?

    The third question is there is a third type less complex than
    RNA and DNA?

    the fourth question
    There was no oxygen and there was no ozone layer in the sky 4 billion years ago. How did life begin in these harsh conditions?

    We hope you create conditions similar to the first cell 4 billion years ago for the manufacture of a live cell of the protein and protein synthesis of amino acids
    Please provide my four questions with proposals for microbiologists and chemists

  2. It's a good thing they slowed it down. Because I am highly allergic to any bees that move so fast it can take your head off. Pretty sure no amount of adrenaline is going to save anyone.

    Now lets all hope they don't get Africanized.
