NASA have revealed plans to send a humanoid robot to walk on the surface of the moon within 3 years.
The robot would travel to the moon in a small lander, emerge and then walk around on the surface performing a series of tasks and experiments. The plans are currently being referred to as "Project M".
Project M is a proposed project to land an operational humanoid robot on the moon in 1000 days (M is the Roman numeral for 1000). The humanoid will travel to the moon on a small lander fueled by green propellants, liquid methane and liquid oxygen.
