'Mighty Mouse' robot frees stuck radiation source

Eurekalert reported A Sandia National Laboratories robot recently withstood enough radiation to kill 40 men in freeing a stuck radiation source -- the size of a restaurant salt shaker -- at a White Sands Missile Range lab so that the cylinder could be safely returned to its insulated base. The robot, for its successful efforts, was unofficially dubbed M2 for the cartoon character "Mighty Mouse."

Good for technology
