Let's mark this date, when the first real-life precursor to the Cylons that will destroy humanity first took shape in the form of a robot astronaut created by NASA and ... General Motors.

Both humans and robots have explored the final frontier, but for the first time a human-like robot is going to be sent into space to aid the astronauts on the International Space Station.

Known as Robonaut 2 (or, endearingly, R2), the two-armed 'bot is the result of a venture by NASA and General Motors and will help the researchers involved identify in what ways a robot could be a help to human explorers in space. Before it gets to go on its first spacewalk, however, it'll be monitored to see how well it deals with weightlessness.
