Russia on April 22 launched an unmanned rocket carrying a life-size humanoid robot that will spend 10 days learning to assist astronauts on the International Space Station.

Fedor copies human movements, a key skill that allows it to remotely help astronauts or even people on Earth to carry out dangerous tasks.
