Day 4.045: Robot (in space)
Another local boy - a student at what they would like us to learn to call 'Rensselaer' but is universally known as 'RPI' (I know which is easier to spell) has also helped to design a robot. His contribution was to R2 - a semi-humanoid* robot currently on its way to the International Space Station on-board Space Shuttle Discovey's final mission.
Our robot has legs though - so there!
* Just clarify - it's not half-like a human - it's like half-a-human.
