NPR's Robert Siegel talks to Charles Tilford, AKA Supreme Commander Charles Tilford of the South Bay Robo-Warriors, a longtime contender on the robot battle TV show Battlebots. NASA is having serious difficulties with its Spirit Mars rover, and Siegel and Tilford talk about whether the Spirit battled with the Beagle 2 probe launched by the British, which apparently crash landed on Mars a month ago.
