In the future, advanced robots will be used to explore planets in our solar system and beyond. Plenty of researchers are currently working to perfect them. SpaceBok is a quadruped robot from a Swiss student team from ETH Zurich and ZHAW Zurich that is being used to study dynamic walking and jumping in low gravity environments.

This robot can jump up to 2 meters in lunar gravity. It uses a reaction wheel to control its orientation and maintain balance as it comes down.
