check out the new NASA lunar rover



This has got to be the coolest lunar rover I have ever seen. Part man, part machine....and best of all it runs on linux :-D.

Here is a sample photo of it picking up a rock:

There is lots of information about this and lots of photos of it durring test it was conducting in the arizona desert.

You can view more photos and read more about it at nasa's site:

It seems funny that they'd make a space probe based on the human form, but I guess it makes sense if you're going for dexterity.

Yeah, but if its a lunar rover then the human form doesnt make too much sense.
