Houston, Robonaut 2 Is Ready To Serve.

Discovery launched at 4:50PM EST. It was (and still is) the last mission for Discovery and the third-to-last mission for the entire space shuttle program. Unique about this mission, is that it is the first to carry a humanoid robot into space, the Robonaut 2. The Robonaut 2’s (R2) technologies “have real-world applications for sensor development, such as possible enhancements to lane departure warning, side blind zone alert, adaptive cruise control and rear park assist.”

According to NASA, “A Robonaut is a dextrous humanoid robot built and designed at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston.” NASA plans to use Robonauts to…
