narrator: There's another robot, one developed for NASA's International Space Station that's also lending earthlings a helpg hand.It's actually the Barrett Hand, and it's attached to the Whole Arm Manipulation System or WAM.NASA was looking for a soft material that could help protect the astronauts during liftoff phase, and if you can imagine the G-rce or the force that the astronauts feel during takeoff is roughly three times, a little more than three times the gravitational force that we feel here on Earth, and then on top of that, the launch vehicle is shaking and rattling, and so it can be quite uncomfortable.Looking at the Tempur material, you will s billions and billions of uniquely distributed cells with a lot of half mirrors that simply indicates that you have a uniquely balanced perforation, open-cell structures that gives us the truly pressure-relieving properties of the Tempur mate There's one example where one of our robots was blown up and the EOD technician responsiblfor the robot brought it back to the repair depot with tears in his eyes, almost like it was a fallen comrade, saying, "Can you fix this?An oral presentation of the LLF model was then delivered and participants had 2 weeks to test the model in their daily practice.A post-LLF-model questionnaire was later administered to the participants, requesting feedback on the usefulness of the LLF model.
One of the main challenges confronting NASA engineers on the project was how to protect the rover's delicate electroni from the impact of landing o Mars, as well as from the harsh Martian environment itself.
Since the traditional technologies permanently reserve the bandwidth of the maximum data rate of bursty traffic, these resources generate costs even during trafficless intervals.
The new Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) technology has the potential to respond to such shortcomings in today's systems and to meet tomorrow's communications requirements in a very cost-efficient way.
Despite the earthly strength of Echo's plastic body, NASA engineers knew it wasn't durable enough to survive the extreme temperature swings of outer space.
The addition of zinc oxide coatings blocked 99% of harmful blue and ultraviolet light, and the molecules in the polarized lees blocked wavelengths of light that matched their arrangement, which greatly reduced glare.
