Robots Getting Too Intelligent For Earth, Heading For Mars


NASA, the JPL, the University of Arizona, and Lockheed Martin have combined their powers to bring robotic life to Mars. The new Phoenix robot lander is set to take off tomorrow Aug 4, 2007 on a Delta 2 rocket from Cape Canaveral.

It's no wonder this 750lb gorilla is being banished from Earth. It's one of the most intelligent devices created. It has a "spiked scoop strong enough to bite into ice as hard as concrete" and a eight tiny ovens to cook its martian prey. It even has a frickin' laser beam attached to its head! Luckily for future manned missions to Mars this bot shouldn't survive the winter as it will likely be encased in frozen CO2 by winter's end. (shhh...Don't tell the bot; we're telling it that it's going to a nice new home.)
