What is R2?

The r2 robot, which is an acronym for Robonaut 2, is a dexterous humanoid robot created by NASA, with the goal of it aiding humans in space (Robonaut 2 is just an upgrade from its predecessor, the Robonaut). The robot was created to ressemble as close as a human (with a head, hands, fingers, etc), it will be used to expand our ability for construction and discovery.
