Russian humanoid robot blasts off to Space Station

#Russia’s Soyuz-2.1 rocket has blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome as part of a test flight to check compatibility of the upgraded booster and spacecraft – which this time carries only a humanoid robot to the ISS.

The #Skybot F-850 robot, known simply as #Fedor, has taken the captain's seat on Soyuz 2.1's test flight to the International Space Station, where the spacecraft is expected to dock on Saturday.
