This summer, astronaut Alexander Gerst will once again head into space. Among those who will accompany him to the International Space Station is CIMON, a robot with wide-ranging capabilities.
The robot named Fedor will test skills and aid astronauts on the International Space Station. A previous attempt to dock the Soyuz spacecraft had failed over the weekend.
A Russian humanoid robot has started his journey to the International Space Station, serving as a mechanical passenger for a new type of rocket. The Skybot F850 android, named Fedor, is set to learn new skills in space.
Astro Alex, back on terra firma after nearly six months in space, stressed the importance of protecting our planet for future generations. And as for re-entry, wind and weather feel great after so long in zero gravity.
Alexander Gerst has said in a live-call event from the International Space Station that returning there proved surprisingly easy. Responding to a DW question, he said some of the processes were "like riding a bicycle."
