Robonaut and Astronaut

A Robonaut is a dexterous humanoid robot built and designed at NASA's Johnson Space Center. In this image we see a Robonaut interacting with an astronaut. Robonauts can help humans work and explore in space by working side by side with them, or going where the risks are too great for people.
