Learn About the New ISS Inhabitant: Robonaut 2 (or R2)

I am very happy that Space Shuttle Discovery had a successful launch yesterday, but I certainly wish that I could have been there to see it lift off since I have never seen a shuttle launch in person (or any large rocket launches for that matter).

Besides the able bodied human crew of Discovery, there was another crew member tucked away inside the cargo bay: Robonaut 2. R2 is a new robotic crew member that can perform tasks outside the ISS. Find out more about R2 here: Robonaut: Home.
