“NASA is building an
incredible lunar digging robot that could work all day, every day
for years. This robot will be as different from the Curiosity rover
as night and day, according to a news release from the space
agency. While Curiosity has been packed with plenty of delicate
scientific instruments for analyzing soil on the red planet,
latest creation will be both sturdy and reliable and contain
fewer complex parts.”
—All of modern life is owed to NASA and the moon missions, if you believe movies such as Men In Black, so it’s only a matter of time until the new “incredible lunar digging robot that could work all day, every day for years” becomes the default laborer here on Earth. People in the “knowledge economy” are all expected to be replaced by an RSS script and a retweet button.
