In the pilot episode of “Armed with Science”, host George Zaidan visits the Naval Research Laboratory’s Space Robotics Lab, where scientists are developing robotic technology that can help repair, reposition, or update satellites that are beyond human reach, about 20,000 miles higher than the Hubble Space Telescope. These satellites are critical for Navy and Marine Corps operations, but cannot be repaired in orbit currently.
“Armed with Science” is a Pentagon Channel TV show exploring cutting-edge scientific research and technology development at the Naval Research Laboratory and the Army Research Laboratory. The show highlights the importance of science and technology to national defense and the innovative work being done in Defense laboratories to help address the complex challenges facing the military
