About this Book

Uniquely comprehensive and up to date, this book covers terrestrial as well as extraterrestrial drilling and excavation, combining the technology of drilling with the state of the art in robotics. The authors come from industry and top ranking public and corporate research institutions and provide here real-life examples, problems, solutions and case studies, backed by color photographs throughout.
The result is a must-have for oil companies and all scientists involved in planetary research with robotic probes.
With a foreword by Harrison "Jack" Schmitt -- the first geologist to drill on the moon.
