<p>Three space-oriented projects at CMU's Robotics Institute are described: the Ambler planetary rover, the self-mobile space manipulator and the Hubble space telescope scheduling system. The Ambler planetary rover project is a comprehensive research program to design and build an intelligent machine that will explore and sample extraterrestrial planetary surfaces. The self-mobile space manipulator robot is part of an effort to develop technologies that will enable mobile robots to be used on the space station and other space structures. The Hubble space telescope scheduling (HSTS) Project is developing a software architecture to formulate and solve complex planning and scheduling problems.</p>
