    Controlling robots from Space!

    http://www.technewsworld.com/story/76592.html

    NASA has developed a technology able to allow astronauts to control robots on Earth from space.

    Quite amazing, and could lead to many other new and great things.

    Thoughts?

    They did ?! Funny, there were robots performing surgery while controlled by a doctor thousands of miles away, for years.

    No, the point of the article is about a new communication system that allows for faster communication across very large distances in space, like Earth to Mars.

    Pretty cool, should be useful once there's more stuff in space.

    Angry Bob, don't be so angry, and read the article. The point of article is how they can communicate when there's no line of sight (they cache information until there is a line of sight)
