A humanoid robot will be walking on the moon by 2015.

Usually I’d write the rest of the story here, but this time, I’ve decided to hand it over to the wonderful people at New Scientist:

I say wonderful because I’ve been a fan of the magazine since I was at primary school so I got quite a buzz when their reporter contacted me at work to contribute to the story.
