While the robot pictured above may seem sinister to those people who suffer from arachnophobia, in reality it’s one of the next extra vehicular robots (EVR) that NASA is working on for future space-borne construction projects. Appropriately named “Spidernaut” for its arachnid inspiration, it resembles its real-life counterpart enough that we agree we wouldn’t want to meet the thing in a dark alley.Built by teams at the Johnson Space Center, Spidernaut has been constructed to solve the unique challenges that the next generation of space flight present. With plans still in the works at NASA to send a manned vehicle to Mars and other heavenly destinations, the operational guidelines for the missions call for vehicles that are either too large or too fragile to be constructed here on Earth. NASA’s solution is to send several payloads into space to build space stations that will become space-docks. These stations will be the staging points for the construction of the vehicles needed to support human life during long inter-planetary journeys. To help with the building process, Spidernauts will be deployed to do work that would either be too dangerous or would require a level of control that would be difficult for a human in a space suit.The scientists at NASA liked the idea of using an arachnid-inspired EVR for the advantages its eight legs would bring to the table for space-borne construction. Using Spidernaut is advantageous because its eight legs will be able to spread the weight of the EVR out while traveling over structures that are in construction and the ability to straddle things like solar arrays and telescope mirrors while performing maintenance. This will allow the EVR to work on said structures without placing them in danger of being damaged by Spidernaut itself. The Spidernaut even has the ability to create its own web, just like a real spider, for use in traveling between two structures. Using space tethers, the EVR can create a support system that will allow it to crawl around to the different areas it needs to go. The inclusion of this ability is pure genius on NASA’s part as this support system will be able to bend and flex but not break, making it ideal for the rigors of space. Right now there is one working prototype in Houston that is being developed for future missions, and is being used as the basis for other EVR’s being built for different purposes.Read more at NASA’s Spidernaut site
