Robot for India’s moon mission
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is planning to send a robot for its mission to Moon. It will be built by a bunch of student engineers and research staff at the IIT-Kanpur. Its going to be a two-legged robot that will help detect hindrances and collect surface samples. It is expected to cost about $50,000…. !! Beats NASA on that front, but I guess things get built for cheaper in India. More info at [sifynews].
