In May 2022, European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Mathias Maurer returned to Earth from the International Space Station after spending 174 days as a member of the SpaceX Crew-3 and Expedition 66/67 crews. As part of his "Cosmic Kiss" mission, Maurer flew "ROBert," a Playmobil robot figure.
Shortly after the arrival of Playmobil's robotic genius, ROBert, at the Space Station, Matthias took the opportunity to give his robot friend a guided tour of the Station and the recording of this encounter has just been released.

During the video, ROBert and Matthias talk about what astronauts do in a typical day; where they sleep and what sports you can play while experiencing the 'weightlessness' of microgravity. The highlight of the video is the panoramic cupola window, where they can watch our planet Earth pass underneath every ninety minutes.

Thanks to the cooperation between Playmobil and ESA, a series of educational videos have been produced to look at such subjects as astronaut training, satellite communications and how rockets get into space and to the Space Station.

In celebration of ROBert's spaceflight, Playmobil released a duopack featuring the robot and an ESA astronaut figure.
With this exciting Playmobil DuoPack, children can experience great space adventures at home and playfully live out their enthusiasm for science. The set includes an ESA astronaut in a space suit and robot ROBert. This product was developed in collaboration with ESA, for the purpose of fostering children's interest in space science.
