The Great Robot Race

If you didn't watch The Great Robot Race on PBS's Nova last night, you missed a cool show. The DARPA Grand Challenge 2005 was an ambitious competition - a 130 mile race between unmanned vehicles through the Mojave desert, with the winner getting two million dollars. They had a similar competition a year ago, and no one got close. This time, the competition was successful though. It's really a very entertaining show. If you missed it, you can download the show from Nova's Great Robot Race website.
