Instacart Wants to Replace Humans with Robots

According to Bloomberg, Instacart is trying to replace many of its human grocery shoppers with robots. While they haven’t started testing the plan yet, the goal is to have robots gathering items throughout the store while humans gather deli items and produce.

ISS Was Damaged by Space Junk

A robotic arm attached to the International Space Station (ISS) has been damaged by space junk. According to the Canadian Space Agency, their Canadarm 2 was hit by a tiny piece of space junk. The incident damaged the thermal blanket and the boom beneath. CSA noticed the damage in early May. The debris was too small and fast to be tracked by current radar systems, yet still substantial enough to do significant damage.
