Videos of an advanced space faring robot prototype has been released for public viewing by ESA. They have used the same principal as gecko feet to enable the robot to climb any surface in a zero gravity environment. The basic concept is millions of tiny sucker pads created at the nano scale are able to create enough surface tension that the footpad will literally stick to the wall without any adhesive. The next step is increasing the speed of the little robot explorers so they can work in human scale timelines.
It shouldn’t take them long before they are reaching the speeds of a real life Gecko. It’s only a matter of time before these robotic helpers are out there in the harsh climate of space ferrying tools and components to the human crew as they build the next generation of transporter vehicles for deep space exploration.
