Astronauts test Mountain View-controlled robot technology
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (KGO) -- Astronauts onboard the International Space Station are testing technology that allows them to control a robot in Mountain View.
Scientists at NASA Ames say in the future, the system will allow astronauts to remain safely aboard their spacecraft while using remote-controlled robots to explore the moon, asteroids or even other planets.
NASA says the same technology could also enable doctors to remotely perform surgery using a robot.
