ISS028-E-030758 (22 Aug. 2011) --- Robonaut 2 -- the first dexterous humanoid robot in space -- is pictured in the Destiny laboratory of the International Space Station shortly after it was powered up and teams on the ground sent power to the robot for the first time in space. The red flags tied around R2's wrists are to remind the crew not to use its arms as handles.
