Vice President and Director of Exploration Technology, Honeybee Robotics
It’s called PlanetVac, and it’s an amazingly simple way to collect a soil sample on Mars. Or on the moon. Or on an asteroid. We’ll learn about it from Kris Zacny of Honeybee Robotics. You can also catch the video tour Bruce Betts got at Honeybee. Later, Bruce and I will tell you about two new contests, each with a very cool prize. Bill Nye is traveling, but we’ve got Emily Lakdawalla with a new angle on the search for near earth asteroids.
