Lots of robots this week! We loved the giant orb at Burningman, celebrating robots this year as it’s theme. And we are looking forward to Japan’s Hayabusa-2 spacecraft sending a lander to Ryugu, a near earth object, an asteroid orbiting our planet, later this month.  Once it lands, it will be deploying to two spring-powered robots to investigate the giant space rock, bouncing around until they find something interesting to report. There is also a new commercial kitchen robot, “Flippy,” and an international UN conference to try to ban Killer Robots (they failed). Meanwhile, other robots have discovered massive amounts of water on Jupiter, suggesting that the giant red spot may be powered by the life-giving substance and perhaps might support life on the gas giant.  Could life actually exist on Jupiter..maybe… Enjoy!

This year’s Burning Man festival theme was “I, Robot,” and two Danish designers caught people’s attention with a 100-foot-tall orb on a mast.
