Россия  отправила на МКС первого человекоподобного робота, Фёдора.

FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) проведет на МКС ряд экспериментов и отправится обратно на Землю. Фёдор сам, без сопровождения, занял место командира корабля «Союз». Это первый за 33 года полет «Союза» к МКС без человека на борту, и стыковка со станцией будет автоматической.

Одиночный полет на корабле стал также тестом модернизированной версии ракеты «Союз», прежде чем ей доверят возить космонавтов.

Внешне FEDOR выглядит скорее как боевой робот.
Его рост - 180 см, вес — 160 кг.

FEDOR — первый робот-андроид, который в качестве будущего члена экипажа на борту МКС облетит вокруг Земли.


Russia Just Launched Its First Humanoid Robot Into Space

On Thursday, Russia launched an unmanned rocket carrying its first life-sized humanoid robot to the International Space Station. The robot, named Fedor (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research), will spend 10 days learning to help astronauts in space. Its name is short for "Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research".

The humanoid blasted off "in a Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft at 6:38 am Moscow time (0338 GMT) from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan." He is scheduled to dock at the International Space Station on Saturday and stay until September 7.

The launch is unmanned. The humanoid was strapped into a specially-made pilot seat with a small Russian flag in its hand before being launched into space. It even said: "Let's go, let's go," during the launch, an homage to the famous phrase used by first man in space Yuri Gagarin.

The human-like robot stands about 5‘11“ tall and weighs about 353 pounds. And of course, what would a scientific technological advancement be without having its own Instagram and Twitter accounts? Fedor's social media accounts update its followers with posts on when it acquires new skills, like opening a bottle of water.

"The first stage of in-flight experiments went according to the flight plan," Fedor Tweeted after reaching orbit.

At the International Space Station, the robot will have a chance to try these skills in a low gravity environment.

Russian space agency's director for prospective programmes and science, Alexander Bloshenko, said: "That's connecting and disconnecting electric cables (and) using standard items, from a screwdriver and a spanner to a fire extinguisher."

Fedor copies human movements, which is a key skill that allows it to help astronauts remotely while humans are strapped into an exoskeleton. These humanoids could eventually carry out dangerous operations, like spacewalks, instead of putting humans at risk.

The humanoid is also described as being potentially useful for high radiation environments and tricky rescue missions. The robot was initially developed for the emergencies ministry, but it can also be seen shooting at targets using two handguns in a video posted by Russian space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin.

At the ISS, the robot will perform tasks supervised by a Russian cosmonaut who docked at the ISS in July. The cosmonaut will "wear an exoskeleton and augmented reality glasses in a series of experiments later this month."

While showing President Putin photographs of the humanoid robot, space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin told him: "In the future we plan that this machine will also help us conquer deep space."

Russian media also speculated that these types of robots will be used in Russia’s moon program.

Fedor is not the first robot to make the journey. In 2011, NASA sent up a humanoid robot that had a similar aim of working in high-risk environments. It experienced technical difficulties and was flown back to the earth in 2018.
