Reports are in that Lunokhod 1 and 2 have hunkered down in a crater and are exploring their defensive options against the CPU hungry undead.

The Boston PD is probably writing a 'Homeland Security' grant for assorted ex-NASA gear so that they can mount a mission to save us from those shady characters once and for all... If sheriff bubba of nowhere county can get an MRAP to carry his paramilitary squad to reported sites of public intoxication and whatnot, surely the BPD deserves a shoot at the mooninite menace?

I just want to thank BoingBoing for posting these. Amazing science stories aren't less amazing just because a different country is doing the science.

Not really. Just following one irrelevancy with another. Thought someone might find it just a bit interesting.

It woke up, but has it's self-awareness survived the downtime? Such things are fragile and ephemeral... until we hear another moving statement, I must assume the worst... that it is now just be a common piece of machinery.

It just needs a kiss from EVE. That always works.

Clearly we need hands-on technical investigation of what exactly is ailing Jade Rabbit. I suggest we send a manned mission to the Moon to repair the probe.
