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.
