Terry Fong is leading NASA’s new push into space exploration. Long gone is its legendary space shuttle program. The future belongs to Terry’s Robotics Intelligence Group. His team designs everything from land rovers to droids that help astronauts aboard the International Space Station. We’ll step inside the lab where they’re creating NASA’s latest robots. Astronauts aboard the ISS will soon operate one of these robots while its stationed at Moffett Field. It’s a challenging job, but Terry wouldn’t have it any other way. “The first thing I want to do, even before breakfast, is get to work,” he says.
