NASA Commentator Lori Meggs at the Marshall Space Flight Center talks to NASA Ames Research Center’s Chris Provencher about SPHERES – a space station robotics experiment platform used for multiple purposes. May 18 marks a milestone for the project with 10 years of operations. These bowling ball sized experimental satellites have been used for everything from autonomous rendezvous and docking, to sloshing liquids, and even educational robotics competitions. And now adding to that legacy is the next generation free-flyer called Astrobee scheduled to fly in 2017.
