Space Robot to be Tested in Antarctica

This is one of the more interesting articles I have come across in a while. It is about a space robot that they are going to test in Lake Bonney in the McMurdo Dry Valleys region of Antarctica in November 2008. This robot is called ENDURANCE (Environmentally Non-Disturbing Under-ice Robotic ANtartic Explorer). This type of robot is being tested to be later used to explore the ocean under the ice on Jupiter's moon Europa.
