Did You Know? NASA is going to test drive an alien-hunting robot in Antartica. NASA will test drive a robot underneath Antarctica’s sea ice in preparation for a mission in the subsurface oceans of Jupiter's moon, Europa.
Buoyant Rover for Under-Ice Exploration, or BRUIE, is a two-wheeled robot that uses buoyancy to anchor itself upside-down on the bottom edge of ice in order to study the zone where ice crusts and the ocean environment interact. Life is often found at interfaces, for example, where the ice meets water. Europa likely contains more water than all of Earth's oceans combined, and it might have the potential for life. There are still many challenges to overcome before a mission to Europa will be possible. #tldr #trianglecompudocs #didyouknow
