Scientists at The University of Edinburgh unveil humanoid robot that will help NASA on unmanned missions to Mars | City A.M.

Scientists at The University of Edinburgh have recently unveiled a £2m humanoid robot that will help NASA on un-manned missions to Mars.

The Valkyrie project is a result of collaboration between NASA and The University of Edinburgh on a very ambitious futuristic idea.

Valkyrie is the most advanced humanoid robot in the world and only three exist – one in Edinburgh and two in the US. This is a long-term loan under the NASA Space Act Agreement, requiring detailed, year-long negotiations to get around NASA’s very strict rules on loaning-out the hardware outside the US.

The University is fortunate to work on this amazing project, with the real possibility that NASA is planning to use these humanoid robots to send un-manned robotic missions to Mars.
