I like the last sentence of the story: "I don't care if its robots or humans that bring back the pictures and the knowledge." I feel the same way. Although human exploration is always desirable, I agree we should do it any way that enables us to get the job done. With today's technology, I'm sure we could come back with some amazing knowledge, including photos and videos for those of us who need visuals.

I especially like the novel approach used in this design for robotic swarms/groups that might explore other planets. As far as I'm concerned, either robots or humans can bring back the pictures and data we've been waiting for: just bring it!
