Japan wants robots on the moon


That’s according to Japan’s Strategic Headquarters for Space Development. It hopes to have a bipedal humanoid robot on the moon’s surface by 2020 as a part of a bigger Deathstar space plan. The mission will be robot-only at first, but follow up launches will be manned (with robot helpers, of course). I’m sure we don’t need to explain the seriousness of putting ruthless robot overlords in a position where they might build an enormous laser and fry us all, but we will anyway. It’s very serious. Unless it’s just going to be Keepon, our favourite dancing robot, on board for some Fly me to the moon action.
