Seems like a science fiction film, but it is definitely not in outer space, it is on our very earth’s slopes of the Europe’s yet most active volcano ground, a robot and it’s wheel are walking on a windswept and rocky landscape.

Based in Sicily, Mount Etna, is now a test bed for around three-foot high with four wheels robots walking, just ahead of it’s next mission to the moon.

The test is driven by German’s Aerospace Centre, which runs the Germany’s space programme.

Experts from Britain, Germany, Italy and the United States have joined in the programme, which names as ROBEX (Robotic Exploration of Extreme Environments) and the main of this test are to ensure, the improvements of the equipment that will be used in the space environment.
