You Know What this Space Station Needs? Bees!
The International Space Station (ISS) will soon be home to a swarm of robotic bees, designed to assist space travelers with routine tasks around the orbiting outpost. Like their namesakes, these bees will be busy, recording experiments as they are performed by residents of the space station, gathering supplies, and keeping track of inventory. Between tasks, the Astrobees will return to their docking stations in the Kibo module of the space station, where they will recharge their batteries.
