Robonaut is On Board!

After being stuck on Earth for months longer than expected, robot astronaut Robonaut is right at this minute being released from his crate, on board the International Space Station.

“The lids off!” he excitedly Tweets.

Robonaut is the first humanoid robot in space. The humanoid was boxed up in August but his flight to space was delayed by repeated setbacks in the launch of the Discovery shuttle.
