Editor's note: In an effort to keep the topic ISS: Robonaut 2 (R2) unpacking and first ops focused on status updates, reader's feedback and opinions are directed to this thread.

Please use this topic to discuss Robonaut 2, a dexterous robot and the first humanoid to be launched into space, and its use aboard the International Space Station.

They want to hear if it starts muttering "Kill all humans!" before they let it start moving about.

Oh, come on. These machines are simply tools, to make our lives easier...better.

Besides, this is mere child's play. Imagine the promise of this SkyNet thing I'm hearing about!

As long as it says "Kill All Humans" in Dick Teufeld's voice, I would accept that. Dick voiced the robot from "Lost In Space."

Jay you're showing your age. The robot on the Lost in Space TV series I watched as a kid was Ray Walston.
