How can robots help humans live and work in space? NASA is studying that right now!SPHERES are independent spacecraft able to complete tasks for astronauts; these little spacecraft can fly inside and, in the future, outside the space station to help complete essential tasks. NASA connected each SPHERE to a smartphone that gives them SPHERE camera capabilities, sensors to help conduct inspections, a computing unit to make calculations and Wi-Fi.Link to NASA Now: Robonaut 2For more information about SPHERES: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/spheres_smartphone.html
