Russia tests new Soyuz rocket by sending a humanoid robot to the ISS

Russia tests new Soyuz rocket by sending a humanoid robot to the ISS Russia's space agency, Roscosmos, has just launched a new Soyuz booster on a trip to the ISS. Unlike other Soyuz flights that blast off to bring astronauts to the space station, this trip has no humans on board. It does, however, have a passenger: a humanoid robot nicknamed Fyodor. The machine's real model name is Skybot F-850, and it's one of the latest versions of the FEDOR robot Russia has been working on for years. Fyodor blasted off with 1,450 pounds of supplies on top of a Soyuz 2.1a rocket, which is equipped with a new digital flight control system and upgraded engines, according to Space.

CLIP DESCRIPTION: Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) blows the alien away and begins her journey back to civilization. A close encounter of the third kind becomes a Jaws-style nightmare when an alien invades a spacecraft in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic.

Ellen Ripley destroyed the Nostromo and the xenomorph that killed her fellow crew members. When an alien parasite gets on board, it wipes out the entire crew. So what Ellen needed to restore her is much like when Goose and Maverick had the jet collision, and Goose hit the canopy trying to bail out.

My arms are seven feet long and I can lift 1,000 pounds with my bare hands. Thanks to the Guardian GT, the big-arm robot I'm controlling, I actually feel like I'm in the power loader from Aliens.

Designed and built by Sarcos Robotics, the Guardian GT is designed to go into dangerous situations where humans can't -- such as decommissioned nuclear power plants. It's an industrial exoskeleton that can run on batteries, diesel or natural gas and is designed to act like a scaled-up human. There are two cameras that act as eyes so the operator can remotely see what's in front of the robot.

Each arm is structured like a human arm and has similar joints. So when you're controlling the robot remotely from the base station, you have the same sort of dexterity with the robot arm as your actual arm does. It even has a "thumb" and two fingers to help it grip objects, press buttons and operate power tools.

Russian capsule carrying robot docks at space station

Russian capsule carrying robot docks at space station MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian space capsule carrying a humanoid robot has successfully docked at the International Space Station after a failed attempt last week. Russian space agency Roscosmos said on Tuesday that the capsule carrying the robot and other cargo docked at the orbiting lab early morning Moscow time. The robot, called Fedor, sent out a tweet upon arriving saying: "Sorry about the delay. Got stuck in traffic. Ready to work now." The capsule was launched Thursday as part of tests of a new rocket that is expected to replace the workhorse Soyuz-FG next year, but failed to dock. Now it has safely arrived, Fedor will perform two weeks of tests aboard the space station.

On top of the Guardian GT, Sarcos Robotics also makes the Guardian S, a snake-like robot that can inspect dangerous terrain and cling to walls. The company is also working on a forthcoming, fully wearable powered exoskeleton called the Guardian XO, which reminds me of the Iron Man suit.

Edward Snowden says he found no evidence of aliens in government databases .
Whistleblower Edward Snowden said that he searched databases before he left his job as a contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) and found no evidence that the government was hiding the existence of aliens."I know you want there to be aliens," Snowden told Joe Rogan during an interview for the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast released Wednesday. "If we are hiding them - I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, CIA, military, all these groups - I couldn't find anything. If it's hidden, and it could be hidden, it's hidden really damn well especially for people on the inside.
