NASA & Robotic Spaceship, Refuel your spaceship in the local gas station robot can not only be a piece of science fiction films. NASA plans to send the components of a gas station robot in space shuttle Atlantis, scheduled for departure on July 8. When a satellite into orbit, which has all the fuel it, needs to perform the entire mission. Once the fuel is depleted, the mission is over. That basically means making the protagonist, game more, the African Union to older satellites experiencing problems or may have fallen into the wrong orbit, thus requiring extra fuel.
As part of its mission robotic refueling, engineers at NASA plans to send the components of the gas station to the International Space Station. The mission marks the launch on the space station before the program 30 years orbiter is retired.
The components of the gas station will connect the shuttle Atlantis as a platform outside. Like a normal gas station, the robots will be able to fill?? Er and make minor repairs to the orbiting satellites.
The service station, becoming the first player used Canadian-built Dextre robot that will check the station, becoming leading functionality aboard the space station in orbit. The refueling test hardware caps are included simulation; thermal blankets external valves, and fuel ethanol.
“Because of the way in which these satellites were initially met, the nature of this mission is very complex,” said Benjamin Reed, deputy director of NASA’s Project Service Capacity Project Space. “If this works, every time a satellite passes through this process, not only will you be refueled, but also changed so that now it can be replenished more easily.”
If the tests go well, the body shop, becoming the first player mission shall be to repair a satellite running out of fuel. If the orbiting station cannot refuel the meteorological satellite, which is going to retire for good, NASA officials.
Atlantis is scheduled to launch on July 8 at 11:40 am EDT with three astronauts on board, including Chris Ferguson, pilot Doug Hurley and mission specialists Rex Walheim and Sandra Magnus.
