Astrobee robots in 360° | Cosmic Kiss


Join ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer inside Kibo, the Japanese laboratory module of the International Space Station in 360°, setting up Astrobee robotic free-flyers for the ReSWARM experiment. Short for RElative Satellite sWArming and Robotic Maneuvering, this robotics demonstration tests autonomous microgravity motion planning and control for on-orbit assembly and coordinated motion.

This investigation aims to test coordination between multiple robots, robots and cargo, and robots and their operating environment as developers envision the future of autonomous robot operations in space.

Matthias was launched to the International Space Station on Crew Dragon Endurance as part of Crew-3 at 02:03 GMT/03:03 CET Thursday 11 November 2021. His ESA mission on board is known as Cosmic Kiss and will see him live and work for approximately six months in orbit.

  1. Big thank's for posting 360° video's from time to time, sometimes i am watching them with a VR Headset and this is giving me atleast a small idea of how space and zero gravity might be. 😀

  2. This is so cool to see. And 360 is such a cool way to experience life on the ISS.
    Also those bots look and their way of moving around really makes me feel like we're living in the future 😀
