In pictures: Everyone’s favorite new ‘Star Wars’ robot visits NASA

Star Wars BB-8 NASA Photos

We’ve loved BB-8 ever since we first spotted him rolling around in the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. The cute little robot is a clear hit with the crowds, and might grow to become even more popular than R2-D2 and C-3PO. He’s so cool that he even got the chance to visit NASA and play with the actual robot prototypes that the agency will use for space exploration missions.

Here are some pictures from this epic visit.

Captured at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, the following photos show BB-8 roaming the halls, playing around with various other robots. BB-8 even has a visitor’s badge, and we wouldn’t have it any other way – these pictures were posted on NASA’s JPL Facebook page, along with the following comments:

“These are the droids you’re looking for. BB-8 visited our historic clean room where real NASA space robots are made.”

“The Force is strong with this one. BB-8 learns of NASA’s #JourneyToMars from the NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover’s test double here in the JPL Mars Yard.”

“BB-8 with JPL’s disaster-relief robot, RoboSimian.”

“BB-8 met many robots on today’s tour of JPL.”

Chris Smith started writing about gadgets as a hobby, and before he knew it he was sharing his views on tech stuff with readers around the world. Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
