Robonaut 2 Joins Twitter


Robonaut 2 has joined the list of those who are really into Twitter. His first tweet from the ISS, "Those electrons feel GOOD! One small step for man, one giant leap for tinman kind."

He has been answering questions and sending birthday well wishes to his followers. Unfortunately, he is still restricted to his torso although NASA plans to add either a leg or rover in case they wish to expand his chores on Mars or the Moon. You can keep up with R2's comments on his account (@astrorobonaut) that already has about 40,000 followers.
