Robonaut 2 is set to become the first humanoid robot in space when it blasts off on a mission to the international space station November 1st. Robonaut 2 will live and work in the station along with the rest of the crew.

The most interesting aspect of Robonaut 2's trip will be that it will be tweeting the whole thing. That's right, you will be able to get 140 character or less updates from the first humanoid robot in space.
