SSL will make NASA's space robot mechanic for $ 127 million
When broken car, a motorcycle or a toaster, enough to turn to the skilled person that for a certain amount of will fix everything. But it is not so easy to repair. Satellites, for example. They're high in orbit fly, and there is much more difficult to catch them, to repair or modify the design. Therefore, you can continue to clutter the space by replacing old or defective machines with new ones and can fix what is broken, if the figure out how to do it, of course. In NASA intend to solve the problem with the repair of spacecraft using repairman Restore-L, designed for diagnostics, repair and re-deployment of the satellite repaired in orbit.
