Just because NASA is slowly dying, doesn’t mean GM shouldn’t try and sell cars in space.
General Motor’s Robonaut 2 made its way to the International Space Station in late February, probably escaping some catty robo-girl that he felt a little too comfortable with when the times were good, and just couldn’t tolerate when the chips were down. In the ultimate outsource, the Robonaut 2 will act as the ISS’s janitor, replacing some poor space jockey by mopping and spraying air freshener in the astro-john. Or something like that.
A second R2 unit will remain in Johnson Space Center in Huston, where it will wait for the special someone to finally be the droid they were looking for. This giant waste of money might help GM improve robotic manufacturing in the future, and may also serve as a prototype to a better crash test dummy.
