Title

  • NASA's Desert RATS: Desert Research & Technology Studies

Summary

  • The Black Point Lava Flow in northern Arizona offers a research haven for NASA's Desert Research and Technology Studies (RATS) team of scientists and engineers, because this rough, dusty terrain, with its extreme temperatures that swing from hot to cold, resembles other places in the solar system. On this bleak landscape, NASA crews can test robotic systems and extravehicular equipment; adjust and improve their designs; and create effective procedures for solar-system exploration. NASA scientist Jacob Bleacher visited the Library of Congress to discuss "NASA's Desert RATS".
