Sphero SPRK+ on ISS, Ready for Operation

Our Sphero "SPRK+ Robot on ISS" experiment is safely docked at the International Space Station, following a launch earlier this month on the Orbital ATK Cygnus OA-5 cargo mission.  Now we're waiting for the astronauts to remove the Nanoracks Black Box experiment module containing the robot and install it for operation on Station.

Once that occurs, Nanoracks engineers will begin operations of the robot.  Here's a photo of the SPRK+ mission control station in Houston.
