Humanoid robot sent into space


Russia has sent a humanoid robot to the International Space Station as part of tests on a new rocket that is expected to replace the current vehicle.

The Soyuz capsule, which typically carries a space crew, blasted off from Kazakhstan this morning carrying the Fedor robot.

The robot was in the commander’s seat, holding a small russian flag in its right hand.
It sent out a tweet shortly after the orbiting saying that the first part of onboard tests went as planned.
