Satellite Servicing Capabilities

Testing Continues for Satellite Servicing Capabilities

Since the first satellites were launched during the late 1950s, daily life has become more and more dependent on spacecraft orbiting the Earth. From time to time, these spacecraft experience failures or simply run out of the propellant necessary to keep them operating properly. Engineers at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida are partnering with counterparts at the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland to develop systems to bring potential future robotic "service tow trucks" to orbiting spacecraft in need of aid.
