Wow, I've been lurking sffworld for years and never knew this forum was here. Anyway...

My friend read a book a long time ago about an AI that lives on the moon (hence the thread title). This AI is trying to rescue/wake up a group of astronauts that are cryonically stored on a spaceship somewhere at the edge of the solar system. To do so, the AI launches a series of self-assembling robots out to the spaceship that, during the trip, slowly build themselves into something that will be able to help the frozen astronauts.

That's it. I don't know if this is the main plot of the novel, a side story, something recounted by one of the characters, or a half-made up dream my friend had while reading the novel. All I know is that this is the only detail of the story my friend can remember.

Help?

And thanks in advance.

Maybe. I'll have to ask my friend. If so, however, then my friend's remembered bit is clearly not a major part of the story.
