The ESA is looking to colonise the moon and use 3D printers to add a touch of European design.
Can space robotics pave the way for the development of connected vehicles?
NASA and the European Space Agency have successfully tested something called the Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) protocol, which they hope will provide internet-like communications in space. They did so by controlling a Lego robot in Germany from the International Space Station.

Justin is a space robot that can fix satellites or destroy them if they don't work. He's the jack of all trades.
According to Canadian engineers at Queen's University, there are now more than 8,000 satellites in orbit around the Earth. Of course, if they stop to work correctly, these satellites will not be able to be repaired from the ground and will become space junk. So these researchers have developed a robotic repair system to fix ailing satellites. Right now, they're writing software to track these satellites. Their tracking software would then be used by an Autonomous Space Servicing Vehicle (ASSV) 'to grasp the ailing satellite from its orbit and draw it into the repair vehicle's bay. Once there, remote control from the ground station can be used for the repair.' I'm somewhat skeptical about the idea, considering that the satellites in orbit have been launched by various countries and companies using very different technologies. But read more...
There's more than one way to pick apart the fabric of space and time. You can dig an enormous hole in the ground, fill it with enormous amounts of cash, and send particles screaming to their deaths inside the eyes of giant robots in search of fundamental truth about how gravity works.
