Hopping Robot for Asteroid exploration

Taking the next leap in space robotics

Asteroids are the building blocks of our solar system. They are abundant and will be a key resource for human presence in space. Moreover, they may harbor the answers to some of our fundamental questions, from the formation of the solar system to our own existence. Humanities future in space could depend on the extraction of their resources for resupply and survival.
However, their challenging environment calls for new, unique solutions. Our robot named SpaceHopper seeks to be just that. It is a revolutionary legged mobility platform specially designed for controlled low gravity locomotion. We think this will enable a broad range of new missions to explore this vast uncharted part of our solar neighborhood.
