Robotnaut 2 Or “R2” Gets His Legs!

nasa_robot-100160351-largeRobotnaut 2, or R2 is finally getting his legs! The NASA Robot has been in service on the International Space Station since 2011, but has been a bit limited as he only had arms. With his new legs, early next year, he will be able to help both inside and outside the space station. His legs will operate more like arms, which you can see in the image, will provide a much better ability to help with tasks.
