Robonaut 2 Set To Launch In February

Houston TX (SPX) Feb 01, 2011 NASA’s Robonaut 2 is primed and ready for launch aboard space shuttle Discovery in February. R2 is so ready, in fact, that it’s going up ahead of its legs, which will follow on a later launch. “The robot’s legs aren’t ready yet,” says Rob Ambrose of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. “We’re still testing them. But there will be plenty for R2 to do while waiting for its lower extremities.”
