Russia sends its first humanoid robot into space

Skybot F-850

Skybot F-850

Unlike other flights, this booster has a special traveller onboard.The booster doesn't have a human on board.

Named Fedor, for Last Experimental Demonstration Object Analysis with identification quantity Skybot F850, the robotic is the primary ever despatched up by Russian Federation.

While this type of aircraft is typically launched with a human pilot, it went without in order to test a new emergency rescue system, Channel News Asia reports.

Russian Federation 's space agency released eerie footage of its human-like android last week ahead of the mission.

"Let's go. Let's go", the robot was heard saying during launch, apparently repeating the phrase made famous by Yury Gagarin, the first man in space.

Footage from Roscomos shows a Soyuz 2.1a rocket, carrying a Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft, successfully lift off from launch pad No 31 at 6:38 am local time, with its docking scheduled at 05:30 UTC on August 24.

Travelling in an unmanned Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft, FEDOR is expected to dock at the ISS on Saturday with 1,450 pounds (660 kg) of cargo including medical supplies and food rations for the crew waiting at the station, NASA said.

Fedor has Instagram and Twitter accounts that describe it as studying new abilities equivalent to opening a bottle of water.

NASA sent humanoid robot Robonaut 2 to space in 2011 to work in hazardous environments. In the station, it will trial those manual skills in very low gravity.

"The first stage of in-flight experiments went in step with the flight idea", the robotic's memoir tweeted after reaching orbit.

This flight mission is significant because it does not have a human crew.

Fedor is not the first robot to go into space.

A key task for Fedor will be to "assist in construction and use of bases" on the moon and potentially other planets, said its Russian designers FPI.

It was flown back to Earth in 2018 after experiencing technical problems.

Japan also sent a 34-centimeter (13.4 inches) tall robot called Kirobo along with the station's first Japanese commander. Developed with Toyota, it changed into ready to employ conversations - albeit handiest in Japanese.
