    Default Venus birds and robot fish: Nasa's mind-blowing future tech

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/60589401



    On Venus, a drone studies the planet by swooping through the sky like an inflatable bird.

    Meanwhile robot micro-swimmers do the same on ocean worlds like the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

    It sounds like science fiction - but these could one day be reality and are part of a huge future tech project that Nasa is investing in right now!

    These are all early-stage projects selected by Nasa's Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program to get extra funding for the next stage of their experimentation.

    "As we set our sights on ever more challenging destinations for exploration with humans and robots, innovative ideas and future thinking will be critical to helping us reach new milestones," added Nasa Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy.

    Innovation requires thinking outside the box.
