Japan to Create Lunar Base With Robots

The Japanese space agency (JAXA) is embarking on a mammoth $2.2 billion project to put humanoid robots on the Moon and create an unmanned robot lunar base by 2020, according to the Japanese Prime Ministers office, noted by CnetNews and NASA.

As part of the $2.2 billion project, the droids will begin construction of an unmanned base near the south pole of the moon that will be powered by solar panels in 2015, according to the panel chaired by Waseda University President Katsuhiko Shirai.
