Spirit and Opportunity in the Robot Hall of Fame

Posted by melissa

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.

T-800 and MER

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).
