From June 14-27, 2009, NASA will use a robot to scout portions of the Black Point Lava Flow in northern Arizona. The K10 robot will be remotely operated from the NASA Lunar Science Institute located at the NASA Ames Research Center (Moffett Field, California). The data from “robotic recon” will be used to plan field work, which will be subsequently carried out by astronauts driving in the “Lunar Electric Rover.”
