The PJ Tatler

Space Secretary?

From Yahoo:

Japan’s space agency JAXA announced this week that it is looking at a plan to send a humanoid robot to the space station in 2013 that could communicate with the ground through Twitter — primarily feeding photos, rather than original ideas — and provide astronauts with “comfort and companionship.”

That “comfort and companionship” thing sounds … well, sounds like someone writing this press release wasn’t quite paying attention.

It’s unclear from the photo whether the robot has a lower half.
