Meeting started with ALPer Jan
Karlo Hernandez giving an
lecture entitled "The Future of Space Robots and
Rovers." This talk will touch on the history of the
current robots and rovers that the space agencies
around the world has and also the future of it. By
giving a brief background of the robots that have
been deployed and the rovers which are currently
being used, we can get a view of the technology that
we have now. The main focus of the talk will be the
problems that the robots encounter and the different
plans and technologies that the space agencies are
trying to create to overcome those set of problems.
Examples of these problems would be the terrain
where the robots traverse through and the limits of
where the robots can explore. The future of the
robots is very interesting knowing that through this
innovation we can know explore the places that
robots cannot access before.

possible venue for ALP December Christmas party at
