Robot of the Week: Roony, the robot that will place a house on the Moon

File this one under the "huh?" category. While digging around for robots, I stumbled on this bizarre story about artist Mikael Genberg's ambition to place a robot - named Roony - on the lunar surface, that will then place a tiny red cottage on the Moon. Why the robot is necessary, I guess I'm not sure. After all, if you can soft-land on the Moon, then you may as well just push the cottage off your lander. But the story was intriguing enough to post it here.

perhaps this begs the question: if you're already planning to land a robot on the Moon, why not compete in this little competition we've got going on?
