Here is another one of  ‘firsts of space’.

Japan is all set to send a talking robot astronaut in space which will be the world’s first. The robot is named Kirobo- a combination of Japanese word ‘kibo’ meaning hope and ‘robot’. Tiny Kirobo is just 34 centimeters tall and weighs only about 1 kilogram. Kirobo is capable of communicating with the astronauts in space, as well as the ground crew.

The robot astronaut is scheduled to travel to space, in early August aboard a Japanese cargo aircraft on a mission to the International Space Station(ISS).
