NASA's 'Project M' - Telepresence Droids on the Moon

It's amazing that humans have reached and first walked on the Moon just over 40 years ago. Today NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) claims they can send a humanoid robot onto our neighboring satellite in just 1000 days. Not only that, but this robot will be controlled by scientists using telepresence suits. These suits would give the scientists the ability to move about the lunar surface and perform their scientific missions via robot with High-Def visors. With only a 3 second communication delay to the Moon, this idea is plausible...not so much for a Mars mission (yet).
