Weight-Lifting Russian Robots Might Fly to Space in 2019


According to “space.com” Article on July 23, 2018, Russian robotic astronauts will enter space in 2019. The Russian side said that the robot will become a member of the International Space Station next year. Russian scientists plan to send the tested 6-foot (about 1.8-meter) robot into space next year, carrying out tasks that are too dangerous for humans. The Russian media also revealed that this space robot has received firearms training.
Russia plans to send two robotic astronauts into space to work for the International Space Station. Scientists have developed an advanced robot called Fedor (FEDOR) for rescue work, although it has recently received training in the use of firearms. According to the Russian News Agency, the Russian space robot will be sent to space as early as August 2019. These robots will be put into orbit as a member of the Soyuz rocket, and no one will be there during the entire launch.
The video on YouTube shows that Fedor will also perform tasks including weightlifting and push-ups. Russian experts hope that it will contribute to the construction of the lunar base in the future. Russian designers said that one of Fedor’s key tasks is to “help the construction and use of the base on the moon and other planets.”

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said: “Space robots can work without spacesuits. Their life is not limited to manned spacecraft, but also outside the spacecraft.” Fedor is 6 feet tall. It is not less than 233 pounds due to extra equipment and can lift 44 pounds of weight.
Head of the project and director of the National Center for Technology Development and Basic Robotics, pointed out that “on spacewalks and other planets, human astronauts will rely on robots.

Another space robot, CIMON — the first artificially intelligent assistance system designed for astronauts — The ability to advance robots in space is being advanced. CIMON, also known as the “flying brain”, is not designed to navigate situations that may pose a danger to astronauts, but it will certainly drive the robot’s performance on the space station to be compatible with humans.
