Russia launched rocket with humanoid robot into space

It's not the first time a robot has flown to the International Space Station.For example, Robonaut 2, a legless humanoid robot developed by NASA, flew to the space station in 2011. A live broadcast was also mentioned.

"That's connecting and disconnecting electric cables (and) using standard items, from a screwdriver and a spanner to a fire extinguisher", the Russian space agency's director for prospective programmes and science, Alexander Bloshenko, said in televised comments ahead of the launch.

However, The Russian spacecraft was known as Soyuz MS-14. Robotic tools are also common: A slender arm, Canadarm2, attached to the top of the station can be used to latch on to a nearby spacecraft and help it lock into place at a docking port.

It was launched from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Thursday and is set to arrive at the station on Saturday.

Formally known as Final Experimental Demonstration Research it will be sent to the ISS via an unmanned Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft next week.

Early data indicate the problem is linked to the station's side of the so-called KURS automated rendezvous system and not on the Soyuz itself.

The Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft was scheduled to dock with the station's Poisk module at about 1:30 a.m. NASA TV was monitoring the entire process and updated reports.

"It can be corrected", he said, adding that part of the equipment would be replaced and another attempt at docking made between 0500 GMT and 0600 GMT on Monday. This will be carried out by Russian flight control centers.

Fedor is not the first robot to go into space. Its mission was to complete tasks in hazardous environments.

FEDOR, who is the size an adult and can emulate movements of the human body, has apparently embraced his mission, describing himself as "an assistant to the ISS crew" on his Twitter page, which has 4,600 followers.

A statement from Russia's Roskosmos space agency said the failure to dock on August 24 was because of problems in the docking system.
