Honeybee Robotics Begins Field Testing Planetary Deep Drill System (November 18, 2015)
Honeybee Robotics is beginning a new phase of development of its Planetary Deep Drill, a lightweight and portable drill designed eventually to reach kilometers below the surface of icy formations in the Martian polar caps, Enceladus, or Europa.
With the support of The Planetary Society, Honeybee Robotics is developing and testing a new Planetary Deep Drill system, a lightweight, portable drill designed eventually to reach kilometers below the surface of icy bodies such as Europa, Enceladus, Titan, and the Mars polar caps.

An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
