NASA warned that a space rock will pass through space at more than 15,100mph (24,300kmh) that will shoot past the Earth after midnight tonight. NASA…
A spherical robot equipped with a camera which may navigate underground pipes of a nuclear reactor by propelling itself with an internal network of valves and pumps. MIT reports that Harry Asada, the Ford Professor of Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and director of MIT’s d’Arbeloff Laboratory for Information Systems and Technology and his colleges are working on perfecting this little ball-shaped robot to help monitor and detect leaks in aging nuclear reactor pipelines. The robot will be able to move itself forward by using the force of water moving through the reactor pipes.
It’s equipped with a series of tiny Y-shaped valves that can change the flow of water going through it , operators can switch up which pipes water is flowing through and navigate the robot that way. The robot will also be able to transmit data wirelessly, and will have a camera to allow operators to “see” in the pipes. However, they aren’t going to be built to last. The robots will be able to go on a handful of missions, but will be treated as disposable since they’ll break down from radiation exposure.
