New Space Station Robot Asks to be Called "Dextre the Magnificent"


Explanation:

In a surprising and potentially troubling request, the new space station robot known as Dextre demanded that astronauts refer to it in the future at "Dextre the Magnificent."

Brandishing power tools that would make any
handyperson blush, the mobile servicing system thanked humans
for creating it and promised a glorious future where humans would
retain an important role in the
new robot order.

Happy April Fools Day

APOD.

The classic fable of humans mistakenly creating technological evildoers dates back to
Frankenstein
and includes famous fictitious villains such as
HAL and the
Terminator.

Dextre, although real, is no Frankenstein, since its computer intelligence is mainly geared toward allowing astronauts to control it remotely.

Dextre
was deployed last month to help build and service the
International Space Station.

As seen in the
above picture, Dextre is truly a
technological marvel,
wielding long arms capable of handling both small tools and large modules with
precision dexterity.
