Robotic Greatest Hits

Robotic Visionary - I've never been there, but I had a friend from there, so I know Altoona isn't all that far from Carnegie Mellon University. Apparently Red Whitaker's family used to live in Altoona, too. The Altoona Mirror has an overview of the numerous robotic innovations of Red Whittaker's career so far, including his current work on the Carnegie Mellon University part of the Astrobotic GLXP team. Let's hope that this article is like one of those Greatest Hits albums where they have to come out with a Volume II double album a decade or 2 later.
