Robot in historic ‘space talk’

, December 23, 2013

Robot Astronaut Kirobo and astronaut Koichi Wakata made history when they had a conversation on the International Space Station (ISS) recently. The conversation was the first of its kind between a human and a robot in outer space.

An extract from the conversation experiment:
Wakata: How did you get out here into space, Kirobo?
Kirobo: On the Kounotori from Tanegashima Space Center.
Wakata: Right. So you came here on the Kounotori?
Kirobo: Not the bird, of course! A rocket.
Wakata: It’s incredible that you came here all by yourself.
Kirobo: Well, I’m a robot!
