On Tuesday, day 1884 of the Mars Exploration Rover mission, Spirit and Opportunity were inducted into Carnegie Mellon’s Robot Hall of Fame . Who else made the cut? Everyone’s favorite Austrian-accented T-800.
So it’s settled: Spirit and Opportunity are officially as badass as the Terminator.
The fact that they were inducted with along with the floor-cleaning Roomba, however, makes the honor slightly less cool (I mean, that robot really sucks).
