Castrol, MIT Media Lab Team Up to Support Lunar Landing Research

Castrol has joined MIT’s Media Lab to support its AstroAnt Payload Program — a miniature robotic swarm designed to perform various inspections and diagnostic tasks on the surfaces of spacecraft, rovers, and landers. Watch this video to learn more about the AstroAnt robot and its mission to the moon.

“At Castrol, we are moving forward on a pathway of change. We have been involved in the Space industry for over 65 years, including many of the pioneering Apollo missions. The success of autonomous machines like AstroAnt will be critical for remote maintenance operating in environments where repair or failure is not an option.” Michelle Jou, CEO Castrol .
