It’s funny how robots used to be thought of as these physical creations with dead-giveaway mechanical voices, when in reality robots are “bots”, unseen software that often fools people into thinking they are fellow humans. The robots are smarter than we gave them credit for, their takeover more insidious and complete. Robots have evolved beyond our anthropomorphic conceit. That’s okay, though, because we still think of space as this super-interesting place where cosmic winds of music push our ships along, where our spacemen can float.
