SpaceX sends AI robot to space station

Besides helping out with space work, CIMON is also created to be able to engage in small talk with astronauts.

A robot like CIMON with human-like personalities could help mitigate the disorientation astronauts may feel in space, Mr. Schulien said.

When Gerst calls to CIMON, the floating robot will acoustically sense where Gerst is calling from, orient itself that way, and zoom over.

The spacecraft is taking around 2,600 kilograms of supplies to the global space station; these include an AI robot named Cimon, cellular biology equipment for cancer therapy, a chemical garden, and other earth science objects. So bot microphones and cameras are specifically tuned to recognize their voice and face. It is developed by Airbus in collaboration with IBM. Once the robot helper arrives at the station, it will be put to the test immediately. Using its 14 internal fans, CIMON can accelerate toward any astronaut calling its name and can appear to "nod" to show understanding of a command.

Crew Interactive MObile CompanioN (CIMON) sent to space to work as a mobile autonomous assistance system.

SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft will launch on a Falcon 9 rocket. The rocket landed after landing on one of the drones of SpaceX, and the company was able to prepare the vehicle in two and a half months again.

"We have implemented this experiment in a very short time".

The capsule most recently visited the ISS in July 2016 while the booster helped to launch a NASA planet-hunting satellite in April. It said in a press statement that it wouldn't attempt to recover Falcon 9's first stage.

The window is instantaneous, meaning teams have only one shot to launch the rocket topped with a Dragon spacecraft destined for a rendezvous with the International Space Station. This data can help society better manage agricultural water use, the United States space agency added.

It launches from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Friday at 5:42 am (0942 GMT), along with some 5,900 pounds (2,700 kilograms) of gear packed aboard SpaceX's unmanned Dragon cargo capsule.
