Even a small step requires a good leg…

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" was the famous line that Neil Armstrong uttered in his helmet radio system while stepping off Lunar Module Eagle’s ladder, forty-three years ago. Thales Alenia Space-Italia, member of Team Italia, is fully aware that even a small step requires a good leg, especially if it happens on the Moon surface: this is the reason why a full-scale demonstrator of AMALIA Lander deployable landing leg has been carefully built and it is now ready for testing. Main objectives of such demonstrator are the functional verification of the leg cinematic and dynamic behaviour and its use at upcoming public outreach events that will involve Team Italia.
