Currently, the field of space exploration heavily depends on robotic explorers. Nevertheless, robots encounter a significant drawback: their incapacity to navigate challenging landscapes and accomplish diverse missions in the vast expanse of space.

To address this issue, a group of engineers at EPFL’s Reconfigurable Robotics Lab have put forth the concept of shape-shifting robots as a potential remedy to fulfill the requirements of forthcoming space exploration endeavors, including brief interstellar journeys.

The engineers at EPFL’s Reconfigurable Robotics Lab have successfully created Mori3, an innovative robot that draws inspiration from the art of origami and possesses the remarkable ability to transform its structure while operating in space.

Raised in New York City by parents who are electrical engineers, Jill was easy prey for entry into the field of electrical engineering, where she worked on designing engine control systems for a number of large auto manufacturers. She developed an "interest" in robotics during this period of time and decided to fuel her interest by reporting on the topic.
