Space Robot Battles
Organizers of the annual ROBO-ONE robot battles in Japan have announced plans to hold a robot fight in space by 2010. The competition, which is designed to increase the progress of killer space robot technology, will take place near a special satellite and consist of grappling matches between two biped robots. The robots must be no larger than 4 inches, and the whole competition depends on unsecured international approval, but I'm excited that there will finally be robots fighting in space. Unless the competition is just a front for a plan to steal service from the HBO satellite, which has been the secret goal of every space exploration mission since 1963.
