NASA’s Robonaut 2 Will Tweet His Way Into Space
August 17th, 2010
The spaceship Discovery will leave Earth on its final mission on the 1st of November. It will take along something entirely different, a robot! This is the robot that we’ve heard about before, the Robonaut 2, but there is something new about it: it will be tweeting all the way into space.
Robonaut 2 is heading to the International Space Station and he is the first humanoid robot that will be in space. You can even follow his tweets @ twitter.com/astrorobonaut.
I’m wondering what kind of tweets he’ll send. Probably something along the lines of: “Five humans assimilated today, moving on to more for tomorrow!”
