Exploring Distant Worlds as a Space Robot Engineer

Huddled in tense silence, a team of scientists watches a bank of flickering screens. Years of design and engineering work, tests, failures, redesigns and successes are bound up in this moment. Finally, a grainy picture appears on the screens. Cheers erupt as the men and women realise their robot has landed safely on Mars! In this title, readers will meet the scientists who design and build robots, send them into space, and even drive the rovers that are exploring Mars today. There is also a fun Q&A to help readers decide if becoming a robot engineer could be the career for them!
