First Robotic Astronaut’s First Day on Job

“While one chapter of the space program has come to an end with the retirement of the Space Shuttle fleet, another has begun as a next-generation astronaut just began his tour on board the International Space Station (ISS).

The only thing is, he’s a robot.

Named Robonaut 2, the robot first arrived at the ISS back in February aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery during the STS-133 mission. However it was only this week that the crew had the first chance to ‘wake up’ their new colleague.”
