Pennsylvania Road Trip – Day 1

The Carnegie Science Center

We missed being able to tour the WWII submarine, but my favorite part of the rest of the center was the Robot Hall of Fame, featuring famouse robots from television and movies.


I had forgotten about this little guy:

This is a model of Dewey, one of a trio of robots from the movie Silent Running.  I think I’ll have to rewatch that movie. As I remember, those robots may have been the inspiration to George Lucas to give R2D2 a personality in the Star Wars movies.

Next stop: The National Aviary
