Caption: Robot astronaut. Robonaut, a robot astronaut, standing behind researcher Robert Ambrose. This human-sized android is controlled using a virtual reality headset, which sees through Robonaut's two camera eyes, and a motion- sensitive body suit. In space, Robonaut will be operated by telepresence, mimicking the actions of a controller in a space craft. It will replace humans on risky or long spacewalks. Robonaut's five dextrous fingers can handle the astronaut's specialist tools, and 150 sensors in each of its arms allow it to handle even delicate objects. Robonaut was developed at NASA's Johnson Space Center, USA.
