Demo for Associate Administrator Steve Jurczyk NASA Space Technology Mission Directorate & More

On June 8, 2017, the UC Berkeley Emergent Space Tensegrities Lab was visited by the Associate Administrator Steve Jurczyk of the NASA Space Technology Mission Directorate. Dr. Alice Agogino gave a summary of our research, followed by Space Technology Research Fellow graduate students Drew Sabelhaus and Mallory Daly. Demos of all of our tensegrity robot prototypes were successful.

The BEST Lab was participated in more demos this summer as listed below (also photos):
