NASA's Dancing Robot Busts a Move

NASA

You've got to see this one. Engineers at NASA, who are currently testing the All-Terrain, Hex-Limbed, Extra-Terrestrial Explorer (ATHLETE) near the the grounds of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, have put together a speeded-up video set to music in which the six-legged moon appears to dance.

The robot, earmarked for use on the surface of Mars and the Moon, ultimately will be used to haul habitats and other cargo. You can find out more here.
