In an important demonstration of new technical methodologies, from January 14-24, 2013, NASA engineers will try to simulate the transfer of fuel from one vehicle to another, in space, with nothing but robots doing the physical work. Called the Robotic Refueling Mission, it's a major step on the road to developing a robust suite of essential robotic capabilities in space. This International Space Station demo may one day substantially impact the many satellites that deliver products Americans rely upon daily, such as weather reports, cell phones and television news.
