A vague, but potentially exciting announcement from Chrysler this week says that the automaker and NASA are pairing up to "share knowledge" and resources on advanced technologies.
The topics that this new alliance will discuss and investigate include materials engineering, robotics, radar, battery systems and other energy storage mediums. Chrysler has obviously gained a very valuable resource for creating cutting edge (most likely electric) cars, but what's in this partnership for NASA?
The car company says that they have a history working with NASA in their space program, specifically, building rockets and boosters for some of the manned Mercury and Apollo missions in 1961 and 1968. Could Chrysler be offering the same type of help again?
So while the press release is vague with its mentions of "synergies and shared interest," the possible outcomes of this partnership could be exciting. But let's face it -- we're ecogeeks. Any discussion of robots, electric cars and space exploration has us giggling with anticipation.
