Robot Performance Moves NASA. Cape Canaveral Tour Guide Will Have Same Motors As the Mars Rover

competition to become the public face of NASA’s world-famous Kennedy

Arts, “Robothespian” stands five feet nine inches tall, with a full
range of upper-body movement and startlingly human eyes. Now space
agency NASA has decided to employ the robot’s third generation.
