Internally-Actuated Rover for the Exploration of Low-Gravity Planetary Bodies

Internally-Actuated Rover for the Exploration of Low-Gravity Planetary Bodies

The exploration of small Solar System bodies (such as comets, asteroids, or irregular moons) has become a central objective to know the characteristics of early solar system and understating the nature of planetary processes. We can walk and ride bike very easily on earth because of gravity. But imagine walking or riding bike in very […]
