Advancing aerospace exploration

When engineers build advanced research tools, they’re building safer ways for humans to continue space exploration. 

By designing Canadarm, engineers helped make it easier for astronauts to move and manipulate objects in space such as payloads and satellites. To help expand space exploration, they’ve developed rovers with specialized wheels, suspension systems, and power sources that can operate in extreme conditions on other planets and collect important data for scientific research. And by creating telescopes to capture clear images of distant objects in space, engineers have helped astronomers make ground-breaking discoveries about our universe. Through intelligent designs, engineers are improving the safety of space exploration and enabling crucial research throughout the solar system that will help improve life here on earth.
