First Permanent "Resident" on the International Space Station

A Humanoid Robt May Soon Be the First Permanent Resident on the ISS (+Video)

Rick Stella | September 12, 2015

A research team at the French Institute of Health and Medical Research just put mankind a bit closer to complete robot rule this past month, outfitting the humanoid robot Nao with an “autobiographical memory.” To make this accomplishment even more astounding, the team intends to push for its new robotic system to become a permanent member of the International Space Station. Considering the evolved Nao has the ability to learn a wide variety of interactions and movements on the fly, sending it to the ISS (where it can work 24/7) is no doubt the best use of this impressive tech. Let’s just hope the thing doesn’t learn how to control the actual space station.

In the International Space Station's Destiny laboratory, Robonaut 2 is pictured on Jan. 2, during a round of testing for the first humanoid robot in space.
