One small step for a robot... We'll let you figure out the rest.

Robonaut 2, a.k.a. R2 for short, was developed by NASA and GM in order to help humans perform their job, whether it is on the ISS or down on earth.
This robot became the first, but certainly not the last, humanoid robot in space when Mission STS-133 was launched into space on February 24th. For now R2's primary job  is to teach engineers how dexterous robots behave in space but NASA hopes that through upgrades and further development the robot will be able to help with space-walks.
