Mission Accomplished: Robot Astronaut Kirobo Returns to Earth

February 12, 2015
Kirobo, a tiny talking robot, has made history for robotkind.
 
After an impressive 18 months on board the International Space Station, humanoid communication robot Kirobo returned to Earth as a passenger on SpaceX’s CRS-5 Dragon cargo supply spacecraft, which successfully splashed down in the Pacific Ocean earlier today.
