The environment was a challenge today. We were above 4000 meters, the wind was whipping, and it was cold. Fortunately, we’ve been working as a team for long enough that we can anticipate each other’s needs. We all know who needs what (and when), so we can stay efficient despite the weather. It’s hard to have an in-depth discussion when your hood is flapping in your ears. We can only spend a limited amount of time at such an elevation, so it’s very important that we make good use of our time.
About the Exploration Technology GroupHoneybee Robotics Exploration Technology Group engineers and builds terrestrial and extraterrestrial drilling, excavation, and geotechnical systems, as well as sample acquisition, transfer and processing technologies. Because these systems are autonomous, smart, low power, light-weight, and low-mass, they have application not only in space, but here on earth in mining and petroleum applications.
