  2. How to Build a Model of a Future Space-Exploring Robot | Science Spotlight
    Researchers at NASA Ames and the University of California, Berkeley are designing what may be the next generation of space exploring robots. These robots are a type of structure known as a tensegrity structure. In tensegrity structures, rigid elements are not directly connected to one another by bolts or screws, and instead are connected by wires, cables, chains or a similiar string-like object. In this video, CaT Bobino explains how you can make a model of a tensegrity structure out of just straws and rubber bands
