When I received a tweet that Robonaut 2 would be at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum for one day only, I jumped on the Metro to see the show. Luckily for me, it was Mrs. Greene’s day to teach in the Discovery Lab and my day off! Robonaut 2A is as amazing as his twin, Robonaut 2B on the International Space Station. After the live demonstration of its human-like skills, I was able to talk with the R2 Project Team and learned even more about Robonaut.

You may view the photos and videos I took of the demonstration on Flickr.

Below is a FOX News video showing Robonaut 2 in action at the Smithsonian.
