Robot babies used in development research totally freak us out (Tomorrow Daily 150)

On today's show, Ashley and Khail talk about how the ESA might use nets to capture and dispose of space trash in Earth's orbit, give props to a local musician using her heartbeat as a song sample during live shows, and panic over the possibility of a baby robo-pocalypse.

We'd like to apologize, because this robot baby video is a few years old, so we're sorry if you've already seen it. If you did, it probably gave you nightmares, and we're just resurrecting some bad night terrors for you. Or, you're reading this from beyond the grave, wishing someone would enact vengeance upon this killer baby robot scourge.

We also go off on a bizarre "Gilligan's Island" tangent, because obviously everyone watching is over the age of 40 and knows exactly what we're talking about.

Aside from that, it's a really fabulous episode today. We have space junk cleanup ideas from the European Space Agency, heartbeat music, and a laser cutter modded to shoot down physical Space Invaders aliens (even though they're made of paper).

Let's all hope tomorrow's show is devoid of nightmare-inducing robot children.
