Reason #165: Boston Dynamics Will Kill Us All

It was only a few weeks ago that I highlighted Boston Dynamics' Cheetah robot, which broke the robot speed record and is faster than the average human, and now they've got one that can not only jump over obstacles more than 10 feet high, but is precise enough to jump through specific windows up to two stories up. They may be taking over soon, but if the last six months are any indication, it'll at least be fascinating.

BONUS: Check out this awesome Cassini photo of Saturn's moon Enceladus. Those things that look like spotlights pointed straight up are geysers of water ice shooting into space from cracks in the moon's surface. In other words: there's an ocean under there.
