Lego Astrobots Blog From Mars Rovers - The Planetary Society has teamed with NASA to "man" it's two Mars Exploration Rover spacecraft with Lego "Astrobots." The bots, Biff Starling and Sandy Moondust, are blogging their adventure "to allow kids to vicariously experience life in space, from launch, through the six-month space cruise, to landing and roving on the Martian surface."

That is so massively cool, I don't know where to begin. You can find some info on the man behind the Astrobots, Bruce Betts, on the Planetary Society's website.

Very cool. My only complaint: not every cool website is an F'ing blog!*

* Just venting, not looking to start an argument about what a blog is / isn't. As I said, this is a very cool website.

are they supposed to be in the ship together? why do they email each other? i mean, everything else makes perfect sense. but wouldn't the lego people just talk to each other? ha
