US Building Ground-Drilling Bomb-Delivering Robot

Here’s some scary-sounding futuristic war machine development news: The US Defense Threat Reduction Agency is going to build a robot that can drill underground through soft soil and rock, and deliver an explosive payload to blow America’s enemies from their underground hideouts straight to hell.

Called Robotic Underground Munition (RUM), this underground robot would first soft land, then start drilling, navigating under the Earth—away from Global Positioning Systems—until it reaches its target. Once it arrives to its destination—obviously an underground man-made structure—the robot would have to go through the last line of defense and explode inside.
