Creepy video of robot dog exploring SpaceX crash site likened to apocalyptic scenes

•, ByTiffany Lo

Video of a robot dog patrolling the area of a SpaceX rocket's wreckage site has gone viral after viewers compared it to an eerily familiar scene in Black Mirror.The four-legged mechanic dog, manufactured by Boston Dynamics, was named Zeus by workers at SpaceX.

It was sent to the tech company's south Texas site, Boca Chica, to inspect the wreckage of the rocket prototype known as Starship serial No. 10, or SN10.

Twitter user @SpacePadreIsle, who also runs website, posted a clip to show Zeus carrying out its task at the site to search for potential hazards.

The yellow-coloured robot dog shuffles its way past a SpaceX-marked vehicle while the cameraman whistles, saying: "Come here boy!"
