Video: Humanoid Robot Launches to ISS

Earlier this week a humanoid robot called Skybot F-850 was launched into space aboard a Soyuz capsule. The Russian-built FEDOR robot is to perform two weeks of experiments aboard the ISS before returning to Earth after completion of the Soyuz MS-14 mission. The spacecraft failed an attempted docking with ISS on Saturday due to malfunction, and has been positioned a safe distance away from the space station. In addition to the robot, Soyuz is carrying 1,450 lbs. of supplies for the station's crew. Another attempt to dock with ISS will take place this week.
