An explosive lunch

The St. Paul Bomb Squad showed our Eagan Rotary Club this $210,000 bomb robot after our weekly lunch meeting. Rotarian Michael Proebstle volunteered to put on the 80 pounds of protective bomb gear. We had a blast with the two bomb squad officers!

  6. That does look like fun, maybe not so fun wearing all that gear though.

  7. Looks like that rob they want to use on Mars. Men are from Mars, aren't they?

  8. I am staggered that Eagan sees enough risk of bombs that it would invest $210,000 in this technology.

  9. Wow! What an investment. Does it get used much? by the way, I want to hear the dixie band!

  11. The St Paul bomb squad brought their robot and their protective gear to demonstrate to the Rotary Club of Eagan. All that equipment belongs to St. Paul, not to Eagan.

  12. I'm just glad they have such a robot for when they do need it, not in Eagan hopefully. Bombs are too risky to use people, interesting lunch you had Leif and interesting post, thanks.

  13. If we wouldn't make bombs, those robots wouldn't be necessary. Amazing shot.

  15. Cool demonstration. Nice to know the robot handles the dangerous stuff . . . unless of course you are the robot.
