Good Things: October 28, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Let's take a look at some of the Good Things in the news...

The next NASA shuttle mission will have a new crew member.. the G-M robot R-2. The humanoid robot will help astronauts perform in micro-gravity with challenging tasks, as well as jobs that are dull and repetitive.

Remember that James Bond 1964 Aston Martin we showed you yesterday? It sold for more than $4 million. That's actually less than the expected price of $5 million. An American businessman bought the car at a London auction. The car first appeared in "Goldfinger."

And yes, Virginia.. there is a happy hippo. Otis the Hippo at the San Diego Zoo has become an internet sensation after pictures of him smiling surfaced. You can see he's grinning from ear to ear. A zoo supervisor thinks the reason for Otis' happiness is because he is a papa-to-be. Otis and his mate are expecting a baby next summer.
