Robonaut — the first humanoid robot in space — is being tested as a possible astronaut's helper.
"Just like a crew member has to kind of acclimate themselves to zerogravity, our robot has to do a very similar thing, kind of wiggle itself and learn how it needs to move" in weightlessness."
For now, Robonaut — also called R2 — is designed to stay inside the space station. Future versions might venture out on spacewalks, saving astronauts time while keeping them safe.

Having robots in space doing stuff is ok but NASA have been sending drones for years, you cant beat the human touch
