This paper will explore the role robots have played, not only as tools but as iconic representations of the human race, both within our planet and beyond. Human exploration of our environment and our instinctual need to explore beyond has come with its own share of obstacles. The scientific world has made various achievements to conquer such road blocks. One such achievement is
the invention of Robotic Automation Systems, commonly known as Robots. This paper will discuss, by the way of examples, the role which robots play in our pursuit of knowledge and exploration of the unknowns of our world and those beyond.
