#Kirobo the cute robot astronaut heads for the International Space Station – an annotated graphic

In a follow-up to our post last week about robots, job-stealing robots and job-stealing cute robots, today we have the news that Japanese job-stealing cute robot Kirobo  is now aboard the Japanese resupply H-2B rocket, heading towards the International Space Station (ISS).

E&T reported on Kirobo’s space journey today, as he looks forward to helping astronauts with their daily workload and testing the human-machine interface. And he’s so cute, too!
