As you know the highest mountain in our Solar System is on the planet Mars which is called Olympus Mons. But today we will introduce you top 10 tallest mountains according to their heights.
A NASA robot, named Robonaut 2, greeted its human commander with a hearty handshake on February 15, along with a silent message: “Hello, World.”
The historic handshake between man and machine, a first in space, was shared between NASA’s humanoid robot Robonaut 2, and American astronaut Daniel Burbank on the International Space Station. Robonaut 2 is a $2.5 million droid designed to be an autonomous assistant to help astronauts with complex chores to keep the space station running properly. The robot was developed through a NASA partnership with car manufacturer General Motors and is the first humanoid robot ever to fly in space. NASA delivered Robonaut 2 to the space station in February 2011 during the last flight of the space shuttle Discovery. The robot consists of a torso, arms and camera-equipped head. It is 3 feet, 4 inches (1.01 meters) tall and weighs about 330 pounds (150 kilograms). Station astronauts powered up Robonaut 2 in August and have been testing it ever since. NASA also has a twin of the robot on Earth for use in field trials of a wheeled mobile base that allows the automaton to drive around different terrains. NASA station officials said the next major tests for Robonaut 2 in space will be to check the robot’s onboard cameras. The head-mounted cameras allow Robonaut 2’s controllers to see what the robot sees and are also used by the robot itself to verify its work. Once Robonaut 2 passes its camera vision tests, NASA engineers plan to test the robot’s ability to flip switches, push buttons and perform other dexterity tests on a taskboard that mimics the controls used on the International Space Station.
