Destination Innovation is a new series that explores the research, science and other projects underway at the NASA Ames Research Center.

Episode 3 focuses on the Human Exploration Telerobotics (HET) Technology Demonstration Mission, a project that will allow robots to be extra sets of "eyes" and "hands" that help and protect our astronauts during their journeys in space and long-term expeditions on other worlds.

The project is demonstrating how telerobotics - remote control of a variety of robotic arms, rovers and other devices - can take routine, highly repetitive, dangerous or long-duration tasks out of human hands, and improve and hasten human space exploration missions to new destinations.
