Texas Medical Center hospital employees get look at NASA's lunar rover
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Hospital workers at the Texas Medical Center got an up-close look Monday at some of NASA's most incredible toys.
NASA brought its lunar rover to Methodist Hospital as part of this year's Pumps & Pipes symposium. The event brings together experts in space exploration, the oil and gas industry and medicine. They focus on how new developments in each industry could be used to solve similar problems.
NASA also showed off its exoskeleton invention, which essentially gives people super human strength. The medical industry is looking at how it could potentially be used to help paralyzed patients.
