NASA CTO Peck To Visit Pasadena's Honeybee Robotics Wednesday
 
 
WASHINGTON -- NASA Chief Technologist Mason Peck will visit Honeybee Robotics in Pasadena, Calif., on Wednesday, March 14. Peck's visit will highlight how government can partner with small business to help create the jobs of the future through investment in science and technology.

At 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Peck will arrive at the facility, which is located at 398 West Washington Blvd. in Pasadena. Journalists and camera crews wanting to attend the Honeybee tour must be at the corporate offices no later than 8:45 a.m. for access to the event.

Honeybee Robotics has been a technology supplier to the last three Mars missions. It has received multiple NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards to develop mechanisms that could be used on future NASA missions, many of which also have potential in the commercial marketplace. These include excavation and drilling tools for potential use in harsh environments on Earth and other planets.
During his visit, Peck and senior company officials will be available to speak with reporters, tour facilities and answer questions about NASA's technology investments. There also will be a photo opportunity with Peck and company officials during the tour.
