This is a mining outpost on an asteroid; One man and many robots are working here. Despite the obvious need for communication between the man & the robots, they are mute, & have no way of communicating with anyone other than themselves. This, in my opinion, is a big weakness in the plot, though a necessary one.

So, the guy is talking to his son, who is on Earth, but cannot receive any meaningful information from the robots.

Suddenly, the robots, which had been idle, spring into action.

Meanwhile, Ochanomizu is preparing to start his day:

So, Ochanomizu must go into space, and has told Atom to be a good boy, and obey Robita.

While enroute, the ship's captain tells Ochanomizu that the cargo is 30kg over the expected weight. How he knew the weight problem was Ochanomizu's fault, when there are no fewer than five others aboard--

They dock with the orbiter, & immediately, recieve a distress call for the asteroid:

When atom goes to support the habitat from falling, he finds the robots underneath it, attempting to do just that.

This is Archer, come to destroy any and all robots that fail to obey humans' orders. While there is plenty of precedent for tyrannical attitudes toward robots in the Mighty Atom Corpus, this just seems out of place.

Ochanomizu succeeds in delaying Archer by one hour, giving him and the others some time to investigate.

But then, archer's robots begin to act on their own. Of course, not even they can give explanations as to why, though at least one of them can talk. This just seems weak!

Angry, Archer will now no longer wait one hour.

As Atom leaps out to stop Archer, he 'hears' a call for help.

The distress call comes from beneath this substance that is too hard for the robots' drills.
