First humanoid robot at Int'l Space Station (2)

People's Daily Online)  08:17, January 11, 2013

Robonaut 2, the first humanoid robot to go to space, is filmed at work at the International Space Station. The robot has successfully measured air flow at vents inside the Destiny Laboratory, a task which is time consuming and susceptible to errors for human astronauts. It is hoped Robonaut's dexterity will mean it can handle human tools rather than special tools designed for robots. (
