(IDAHO FALLS) – The Idaho National Laboratory is working to develop a robot to assist in in a solution to the Japanese nuclear crisis. The robot will measure radiation levels to determine locations with high radiation levels. That will in turn keep humans working in the area much safer. The U.S. Department of Energy plans to ship the robot to Japan next week. The DOE has already sent 40 employees and more than 17,000 pounds of equipment to the country.
