Russian Soyuz booster accompanied by humanoid robot ‘Fyodor’ to the ISS

For years, rockets scheduled for the ISS have been carrying payloads accompanied by astronauts. The Russian Space Agency takes its place in the space race by testing its new Soyuz booster with its humanoid robot to assure the feasibility of crew safety.


‘FEDOR’ humanoid robot

Denominated as ‘Fyodor’, the Russian machine Skybot F-85, will definitely be considered as a fetish to space exploration, if successful in its mission. The robot is capable of simultaneously firing two guns with unerring accuracy.The machine bound for the International Space Station will be trained for 10 days on handling tools for system assembly. The Skybot is also expected to take part in spacewalks along with the other astronauts in the mission. If the rudimentary tests are successful, they have possible potential to replace humans in missions that are prone to be dangerous as stated by the Russian Space Agency.

The robot’s main purpose is to be used in operations that are especially dangerous for humans on board spacecraft and in outer space

The new Soyuz was launched with advanced digital flight control system from Kazakhstan on Thursday. The shuttle is carrying around 1450 lbs (660 kilograms) of supplies for the crew at the International Space Station. The shuttle is scheduled to dock the ISS on August 24th, and depart after two weeks on September 6th. With more automatons in the space race, human-held experiments are expected to be catalyzed by a good multiple.
