PITTSBURGH — An autonomous, solar-powered robot and its advanced life-detection and geologic instruments, developed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers, have both exceeded expectations in the first phase of a three-year effort to develop and deploy a robotic system that may some day enable other rovers to search for life on Mars. The robot Hyperion, operating in Chile's Atacama Desert, traveled farther and collected more data while operating autonomously than any planetary rover tested to date.
