Re: Is the robot called Roller?

How exactly are the wheels going to be useful in zero gee? Is it going to be mounted on a rail, with wheels controlling movement along it, or what? I'm sure NASA and avatarin have thought through the lack of gravity-provided contact friction usually used to wheel things around down here, so what are the wheels for?
