Robonaut — the first humanoid robot in space — is being tested as a possible astronaut's helper.
The robot was delivered on space shuttle Discovery's final flight.
For now, Robonaut exists from the waist up. It measures 3 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 330 pounds. Each arm is 2 feet 8 inches long.
A pair of legs currently are being designed and should be launched in 2013.
