Video: NASA developing a mining robot for the Moon and Mars

NASA is developing the RASSOR mining robot to collect a type of soil - known as regolith - on the Moon or Mars so it can be processed into rocket fuel, breathable air and other commodities. By using materials available at other locations in the solar system, astronauts don't have to carry it all from Earth. Credit: NASA
