BB-8 Visits His Robot Cousins at NASAMay 2nd, 2016
BB-8 recently had an exciting journey in this galaxy. Disney tour guide Amy Pham took the droid to NASA’s JPL, where they’re developing robots to help humans explore far off planets. They toured the labs and met all kinds of robots, large and small.
It seems like BB-8 had a great time visiting his own kind. These robots are nothing compared to Star Wars’ robots, but they’re all real, and they all serve good purposes. That wall climbing one is especially cool.
You never know, maybe BB-8 will join these robots one day in exploring strange new worlds. I can picture BB-8 rolling along Mars. He would probably do a great job, and he’d do it with so much more style than the Mars Rover.
