I guess I have been out of touch! Science fiction is passing us by.
Tomorrow at 4:40 p.m. EDT (22:40 Israel time) the space shuttle will launch from Florida to take up parts and supplies to the Space Station. Included in the cargo will be "R2" or Robonaut 2, developed by NASA and General Motors under a cooperative agreement to develop a robotic assistant that can work alongside humans
