2 About Dante ll  Carnegie Mellon The Robotics Institute created a tethered robot that walked and explored Mt.Spurr in Aleutian Range, Alaska.  The scientists used satellite and Internet connections to control and move the walking robot.

3 More on Dante ll  Dante 2 was built to explore volcanoes  It explored Mt. Spurr on July of  Dante 2 was the evolution of the Dante robot.

4 NASAS Goals  NASA's goals with this project were to test and demonstrate robot exploration, communications and computer technologies which was needed for the space exploration missions.

5 Abilities  This robot has eight legs.  Four of them in the inner frame lift objects. Two are used to walk and the other two are to support the robot.  Using its tether cable anchored at the crater rim, Dante II is able to descend down crater walls to gather and analyze high temperature gasses from the crater floor.

6 Why it failed  Its mission is to collect data from a harsh environment similar to what we might find on another planet. The mission fails when, after a short 20 foot decent, Dante's tether snaps dropping it into the crater.

7 New era  The use of robotic explorers, such as Dante II, opened a new era in the of field techniques by enabling scientists to remotely conduct research and exploration.  Dante II saves volcanologists from having to enter the craters of active volcanoes. It also shows the technology necessary for a robot to explore the surface of the moon or planets.
