Profile
National Aeronautics and Space Administration - Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is a world-renowned NASA center that took America into space for the first time and has sent missions to all of the solar system's planets. The JPL today supports a diverse array of programs in planetary and Mars exploration, Earth science, space-based astronomy and technology development. JPL is unique as NASA's only federally funded research and development center, staffed and managed for the space agency by Caltech. In addition to its flight projects, JPL developed and manages the worldwide Deep Space Network, operating communications complexes on three continents that serve as the gateway to missions across the solar system. JPL also supports varied research programs by world-renowned technologists and staff scientists conducting investigations in a broad range of technologies and disciplines.

Metallic glass gears make for graceful robots

Gears are essential for precision robotics. They allow limbs to turn smoothly and stop on command; low-quality gears cause limbs to jerk or shake. If you're designing a robot to scoop samples or grip a ledge, the kind of gears you'll need won't come from a hardware store.
