The organization will begin testing the device in Antarctica, with a view to future research.
The General Administration of Aeronautics and Space (NASA) will test a robot next summer in Antarctica.
The goal is to evaluate the device for a search for extraterrestrial life in Jupiter.
In that sense, NASA’s idea is to evaluate the performance of the robot, which travels under the ice.
That way a precedent is generated to then use the device on a mission to search for extraterrestrial life on the planet Jupiter, in the year 2025.
Meanwhile, the robot has an extension of one meter in length and is capable of operating in the water.
In addition, the device has independent wheels that allow it to move under the ice, a statement from the Australian Antarctic Division (ADF) said.
There you can stay, like a submarine, in the same place for long periods of time, without wasting your energy.
In that place it is believed that there are many possibilities of finding extraterrestrial life in the Solar System.
