Japan hoping to send robot into space

Events

Exciting space research news coming out of Japan with the news that University of Tokyo, Toyota, and Dentsu Inc have collaborated a robot with humanoid features to be blasted into space.

The robot called Hope-bot is scheduled to be rocketed into space from the Tanegashima Space Centre arriving at the International Space Station on the 1st of August. How unbelievably cute is this little guy though? What a great ambassador for space travel!
