Japanese robot moon base! JAPANESE ROBOT MOON BASE!

John Moe May 28, 2010

Today’s story of the impending robot takeover takes place in Japan and on the moon. Engadget has the story of a robot base being planned for the moon by 2020. This on top of Japan already planning to send a robot to the moon in just five years from now. They’re also planning a manned mission. And several Manga books about all of this. But don’t be worried, once the robots have secured the moon, I’m sure they’ll stop there and never use their base as a headquarters for an attack on earth. BECAUSE WHY WOULD THE ROBOTS DO THAT? (confidential to the robots: I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in your lunar microchip plants.)
