Re: NASA sending Robonaut 2 (R2) to ISS in Sept.2010
What happened to the robot that was going to be sent up to ISS as a repair bot outside?
I think it's called Robonaut 2. You might find a thread about it in the science and technology forum.
It already says the Robonaut 2 is only supposed to be used on the interior of the ISS. The Repair robot that I am referring to is supposed to be mounted on the girder system and use The or a version of The Canadian robotic arm. I didn't recall NASA putting this robot up on the ISS so it seemed a little strange for them to spend the money to put another robot on the interior of the station.
I just realized I've been posting to a thread from 2010 shouldn't this have been closed?
