You load sixteen tons...

"If you see me comin', better step aside.
A lotta men didn't, a lotta men died.
One fist of iron, the other of steel.
If the right one don't a-get you, Then the left one will"
Sixteen Tons - Tennessee Ernie Ford

Above: A mining robot, called Groundhog,
in action at a Pennsylvania coal mine.

"Could Robots Replace Humans in Mines?"
"Why do human beings still risk their lives burrowing miles under ground and doing one of the dirtiest and most dangerous jobs in the world?"
From NPR:
Check Out: "CLASSROOM ROBOTICS" (the book)
