Hyperion is a solar powered robot developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University that is helping NASA simulate space exploration over extended periods of time. The robot's tasks include determining its position and orientation to the sun, navigating itself into position for capturing enough sunlight to power itself, and conducting scientific experiments. On Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic, the robot will maintain a sun-synchronous position. The concept is important to long-term space exploration of distant planets and moons.
