A technically brilliant team led by Australia’s national science agency has kicked NASA’s butt in a global challenge deep inside the bowels of the Earth. The CSIRO-led team has claimed silver at an event participants think of as the ‘Robot Olympics’, an epic three-year competition that has just concluded in a vast old limestone mine in the US state of Kentucky.

The team, led by scientists from CSIRO, ended up taking second place after tying for first but getting pipped on the tie-break criteria.
