JAXA And ROSCOSMOS Plan Droid Program Wedding To Make A Moon Droid

Russian, Japanese companies plan to jointly design moon robot, TASS

"Russia's Android Technology Company and Japan's GITAI startup plan to create a robot to operate on the lunar surface, the Russian company's executive director, Yevgeny Dudorov, told TASS. "We will sign a cooperation agreement. Later, we will outline joint plans for 2020, 2021 and other years," Dudorov said, adding that the deal would be signed soon. Once the joint project is a success, the sides will present their developments to the national space agencies - Russia's Roscosmos and Japan's JAXA."

Keith's note: Check out the picture. I wonder which parent the Moon droid will resemble. The Japanese droid is designed to be friendly. The Russian droid shoots machine guns. Meanwhile no one talks about NASA's Robonaut any more.
