Learning About PlanetVac at Honeybee Robotics

Please accept marketing-cookies to watch this video.

With member and public support, the Planetary Society will work with Honeybee Robotics to test an elegantly simple yet amazingly effective technology called PlanetVac.  With no moving parts other than a gas valve, PlanetVac will be able to collect soil samples on Mars, the moon or an asteroid. Society Director of Projects Bruce Betts gets a tour of the Honeybee facility from Kris Zacny.
