Depicted in the picture below is Suit Bots Alumni Fletcher demonstrating how the project he is working on for JPL is doing. The project he is working on is designed to take off the gravitational pull of an object hanging on it. He allowed one of our team members to feel the effect by hanging off of a bar hooked up to the motor.
In addition to Fletcher’s gravity offload system, we learned about Alumni Brian Bugert’s work on the Deep Space Network. He is responsible for writing the software that manages the DSN.
