The final frontier of human exploration is moving ahead at a rapid pace. Inhospitable and difficult environments that would normally be unreachable now become accessible thanks to a new class of robot - Robot Explorers. With eyes that can see better, arms that can lift impossible weights, and legs that can move effortlessly over rough terrain, robots can help us in difficult tasks like search and rescue operations. Flying robots can survey hazardous areas or collapsed buildings to search for survivors. In space robots are being used as a new class of astronauts. Is there any danger in letting machines handle so many tasks that used to belong to us?
