Robot being deployed in space.

One has to wonder why now have NASA decided to employ a robot in space, surely in the early days of space travel this would have been an ideal candidate for space.The robot appears to be able to connect to any number of devices including a lunar module, for travelling overland on other planets.

    The Robonaut has been up at the space station a while and has only just been unpacked and now is undergoing test before being deployed for various uses around the space station.
