NASA just launched a $1m space robot competition

The new series of Robot Wars is fantastic. Properly brilliant.

It makes us want to head out to the nearest B&Q, buy a chainsaw and stick it on an RC car. Except we probably won't, because we don't know the first thing about robotics. 

If we did, we'd skip Robot Wars and think about entering NASA's new competition: the Space Robotics Challenge. 

Top prize? $1 million (£759,670).
