Nasa wants to build a polar outpost on the Moon starting in 2020. The space agency is partnering CMU Robotics Institute and Astrobotic Technology to prepare a NASA-sponsored study describing a lunar outpost constructed by robots. The research examined two potential solutions: 1) construction of a berm around the landing site, and 2) creation of a hard-surface landing pad using indigenous materials. The first solution, two rovers weighing 330 pounds each would take less than six months to build a berm(8.5 feet tall in a 160-foot semi-circle) around a landing site to block the sandblasting effect. In the second solution, researchers showed how small robots could comb the lunar soil for rocks, gathering them to pave a durable grit-free landing pad.

13-year-old father Alfie Patten, 15 year-old mother Chantelle Steadman, their newborn baby Maisie and Playstation... I got this story from TV.
During the baby's first days out of the hospital, Patten and Steadman spent their time caring for the baby and playing Saints Row II. From UK tabloid The Sun:

The four-footer ! who looks no more than eight ! said: "I know I'm young, but I plan to be a good dad."

As he went on the PlayStation with 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Steadman, he added: "I think we'll be good parents. I'll have to work extra hard at school."

Chantelle looked up from 18-rated action game Saints Row II to admit her first night out of hospital since having 7lb 3oz daughter Maisie had been tough and had left her "in a daze".
They play the Saints Row II, the video game is for the adults, not kids. But maybe they are Adults! [ link ]

Last September, when her auction came to light, she had received bids up to £162,000 ($243,000) but since then interest in her has rocketed.
The student who has a degree in Women's Studies insisted she was not demeaning herself.
