Snake and rescue robot

Sunday, 8 August

S2 Ep7. Imagine being rescued by a snake! A new generation of wriggly robots, inspired by the movement of snakes, could save your life. The way a snake can move over a complex variety of landscapes could be replicated by robots to rescue people after earthquakes. It could even help with extra-terrestrial exploration. Thanks for listening. Let us know what you think. #30 Animals Get in touch: www.bbcworldservice.com/30animals
