Robotic Explorers in Space - a talk by Mike Frost


The pioneer explorers of the solar system are not humans, but robotic explorers. How do they differ from the robots of popular culture?


In this talk I trace the history of robots in fiction, from Kare Capek's Universal Robots to Hollywood blockbusters, and contrast it with the ever-increasing capabilities of robotic space probes.


Next talk An Arctic Eclipse
