Japan launches effort to colonize moon with robots
Duelling isn't the only thing the Japanese have planned in the next decade for robots in space. Apparently as reported by the Asahi Shimbun the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (which we can only assume is tantamount to our own NASA) are taking action on their earlier intentions to build lunar and inter-planetary exploration and colonization robots. Meaning they've gathered their team to develop robots with artificial intelligence to land on and explore the moon within 10 years, and independently colonize the joint within 20. But once these robots have completed their objective of taking over the moon, what makes the Japanese think they're gonna hand it over just like that?
