Submission + - Space Company Astrobotic releases Cutting-Edge Ice Robot (astrobotic.net)

An anonymous reader writes: Space company Astrobotic releases a new cutting-edge ice robot with customizable and mass manufactorable parts. Astrobotic is competing for the Google Lunar X Prize and is developing long-run plans to make space exploration sustainable.

Without GPS, Polaris will match surface pictures with satellite imagery taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to determine its location on the Moon. Astrobotic has won nine lunar contracts from NASA worth $3.6 million, including one to evaluate how Polaris can accommodate NASA’s ice-prospecting instruments during a three-mile traverse near the Moon’s north pole.
