SOHLA Plans Robotic Lunar Trip
SOHLA (Space Oriented Higashiosaka Leading Association) is planning to send a humanoid robot to the moon by 2015. At a cost of about $10.5 million, the Japan-based group believes that Maido can help stimulate the local economy by getting smaller organizations involved.
SOHLA board member Noriyuki Yoshida thinks that humanoids are the way to go. "Humanoid robots are glamorous, and they tend to get people fired up. We hope to develop a charming robot to fulfill the dream of going to space."
