Did y'all know there is a 7 ft robot on space station doing maid work.

It is true.
I saw the top half of the robot at an comic convention last weekend in Houston.
NASA was there.
The robot had human type fingers.
You can read about it on the NASA website.
The robot's head is really cool.
Something different to talk about besides Trump.

1. I've long thought that there's potential

in writing a story or maybe even a novel about the cleaning crew on board the Starship Enterprise.

"Oh, the tales I could tell about the Captain. He never picks up after himself. Too busy saving the galaxy I suppose."

2. The NASA guy said it was like Rosie in the Jetsons.

The robot will be trained to do various skills.

4. Youtube has videos.

I wish there would have been a full working robot.

The fingers are like human fingers.

There is a NASA channel on youtube.

The robot is called Robonaut 2.
