    Earlier, Russia successfully launched its humanoid robot Fedor, also known as Skybot F-850, into space. A video from the International Space Station (ISS), which now houses Skybot F-850, formerly called Fedor (FEDOR - Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research), shows the robot inside the ISS.

    The newly-released footage shows how Russia's humanoid robot Fedor moves from one ISS compartment to another, while cosmonauts assist him. Fedor is seen holding the Russian flag in his hands.

    Roscosmos reported that cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov is now engaging in experiments with Fedor. He uses an exoskeleton, which allows him to control the robot remotely.
