Honeybee personnel testing sampling device

From left to right, Andrew Peekema, Justin Spring and Kathryn Luczek, engineers at Honeybee Robotics, recover an early prototype of the Sample Acquisition System after a microgravity test at the Zero Gravity Research Facility. This early design was rapidly prototyped from plastic material to save cost, and reduce the time required to build the system.
