Robonaut and King Nebuchadnezzar's Statue
Here's a different take on King Nebuchadnezzar's statue...
31Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
32This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Head of gold, chest and arms of silver, belly of brass, legs of iron, and feet of iron and clay (miry clay) - this would be the soft tires.
Robonaut is currently onboard the International Space Station, so the stone that smote the image would be an asteroid that becomes a great mountain, destroying the ISS.
