Founded in 1958, NASA has made incredible discoveries and advancements in regards to space exploration and aeronautics research. Their latest mission in the name of advancement is to send swimming robots to habitable oceans in the solar system. No, seriously.
NASA recently announced it has $600,000 in funding for the study. The plan is to send the swimming robots (also known as independent micro-swimmers) to explore the solar system’s many “world’s oceans.” Scientists are curious to learn more about these foreign bodies of water because they apparently contain infinite amounts of water compared to Earth’s oceans.
