I agree, naperlou. I don't know what the radiation readings are inside the plant now, but better to send in a machine.

Lou, I agree. I was surprised and delighted earlier this year to discover that a robot--iRobot's 510 PackBot--had been sent in after the accident and that this US robot was the first one to do so.

Ann, that's a WWI tank. 

Actually this is a good example of a very flexible robot.  In the Soviet Union they would just send people in.  At least here automation is being used to save lives.
