Russia launches humanoid robot to space station

Russia has sent a humanoid robot to the International Space Station as part of tests on a new rocket that is expected to replace the current launch vehicle.

The Soyuz capsule, which typically carries a space crew, blasted off from the Russia-leased launch pad in Kazakhstan carrying the Fedor robot.

The capsule was launched by a new Soyuz 2.1a rocket which has only been used with unmanned vehicles.

The new booster rocket is expected to replace the Soyuz-FG rocket next year.

The robot, which was in the commander's seat, holding a small Russian flag in its right hand, sent out a tweet shortly after orbiting saying that the first part of onboard tests went as planned.
