The Mars rover Curiosity is on a mission to deliver what scientists hope will be groundbreaking scientific research that wouldn’t be possible without robotics, according to a NASA chief engineer. “It’s critical to this mission,” said Louise Jandura, sampling system lead engineer with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “Robotics is a key component of the mobile robotic laboratory, in terms of being able to rove, to move around and drive. We’re mobile and we can use the robotic arm to reach out and touch targets. It’s all key.”
