Dear Sir,

I am an android enthusiast (robotics have fascinated me since I can remember), and I have just now discovered this site, though in the past I have been a tremendous fan of your previous endeavors at the "how stuff works" site. I see many incredible achievements in this field, and I'm glad they're getting posted, even though they're not getting media recognition and attention. I foresee technology such as this being the primary factor in setting up biosphere-like stations on other planetary bodies or deep-space missions. Frankly, I think it's been far too long that we've ignored these developments and the possibilities within.
