Say ‘Buzz’ to Astrobees

A pair of floating robots are now headed to International Space Station as NASA sent them with whole bunch of other ISS supplies and experiments on a Cygnus spacecraft which launched on Wednesday. Their job is to aid ISS crew in their daily activities.

“Astrobee, NASA’s new free-flying robotic system, will help astronauts reduce time they spend on routine duties, leaving them to focus more on the things that only humans can do,” NASA explains. “Working autonomously or via remote control by astronauts, flight controllers or researchers on the ground, the robots are designed to complete tasks such as taking inventory, documenting experiments conducted by astronauts with their built-in cameras or working together to move cargo throughout the station.”
