Another interesting concept of planetary research device developed by scientists NASA. The device, called Super Ball Bot, based on the principle of tensegrity – the ability to use the frame structures interaction of compression of solid elements with a tensile component elements to each element function with maximum effectiveness and efficiency. Feature of the mechanism is a system of movement, which has excellent shock absorption, thus ensuring landing on the planet’s surface without special equipment. This concept applies to planets with a dense atmosphere, which will slow down and fall over at the moment, scientists are looking at the satellite of Saturn – Titan.
