JSC2004-E-49595 (October 2004) --- Jeff Graham (right) and Nathan Howard (NASA), the Desert Research and Technology Studies (RATS) team's Mechanical Engineer, discuss braking issues regarding the nearby robot named Boudreaux during a field trip to the high desert of Arizona. Graham, who has a strong Louisiana background (he calls Baton Rouge his hometown and he attended Louisiana State University), named the robot, one of a number of pieces of hardware tested by the group. The activity was part of a NASA-led effort using the rugged terrain and variegated climate of Arizona desert land to try out prototype spacesuits and innovative equipment that may help America pursue the Vision for Space Exploration to return the Moon and travel beyond. The team is led by scientists from the Johnson Space Center and the Glenn Research Center.
