Santa's little detour

2011-12-22 - Ever wonder how Santa makes it around the globe in a single night? This NASA animation finally reveals the secret magic that fuels Santa's sleigh!

In the spring of 2012, NASA and the Canadian Space Agency will conduct tests on board the International Space Station to show how Dextre, the Canadian-built versatile robot in the video, could refuel and refurbish satellites in space. In the meantime, Dextre would like to thank his friends at NASA for this wonderful animation and wishes everyone back home on Earth peace and joy for the holiday season!
