NASA Launching a 'Robot Hotel' to the International Space Station

NASA Launching a 'Robot Hotel' to the International Space Station

Initially, the robot hotel will host two Robotic External Leak Locators (RELL) that are used to detect leaks outside the ISS.

SpaceX is gearing up to launch the 19th resupply mission to the International Space Station on Wednesday.

The hotel, RiTS will be attached to the outside of the ISS to create and save storage on the inside. The robots use mass spectrometers to "sniff out" gases like ammonia leaking out from the space station.

More than 5,000 pounds of supplies will have to wait another day before launching to the International Space Station.

Additionally, the process of deploying RELL takes much longer when the tool is not externally stored.

"This hardware will significantly reduce time and cost for the station crew to deploy leak detection capabilities using Dextre", said Chris Craw, NASA Senior Systems Integration Lead.

This vast network has thousands of feet of tubing and hundreds of joints.

NASA leaders won't confirm it, but say the payload from the cargo ship could include some Christmas presents for the crew that has been living in orbit. That will mean such equipment will be in tip-top shape for spacewalks, but it will also free up room inside the station and avoid the need to carry such tools through the equipment airlocks.

NASA plans on employing RiTS and RELL systems on the Lunar Gateway and human habitats on other planets.

The new place of residence for these robots was developed by the Satellite Servicing Projects Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland in collaboration with the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
