Robots continue to evolve and penetrate into many areas of our lives. Some help in the exploration of space, medicine and industry, about them shoot fantastic movies .
Today let’s talk about the robotics of the 21st century.

Robotic systems help us in space exploration. Automatic interplanetary explorers NASA, the European Space Agency and the other is currently gathering information about our solar system. Right now, the spacecraft are orbiting the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Saturn, while others fly to the small space objects.
Space probe of NASA Juno was launched August 5, 2011 to study the distant Jupiter. Arriving on the planet expected July 4, 2016. October 9, 2013 “Juno” made a gravity assist from Earth at 559 km above the surface to break up the unit. At the same time made this picture.
