Meet Robonaut 2

NASA plans to launch this little guy up to the station on board STS-133. Robonaut 2 can be abbreviated R2. Yeah, the first real astrodroid! R2 will work like a human with humans on board the ISS in the Destiny laboratory. He is designed to be able to use the same tools that the astronauts use. He already knows how to sit, speak, and sit up and beg!

NASA hopes to make future improvements to him so he can go on his very own space-walks!
