NASA’s humanoid robot Valkyrie

NASA’s humanoid robot, Valkyrie, stands at 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 300 pounds. With a humanoid structure resembling a person, including a torso, head, two arms, and two legs, Valkyrie aims to function similarly to humans with the right software. Its primary applications include undertaking risky tasks in space, such as cleaning solar panels or inspecting malfunctioning equipment outside spacecraft, allowing human astronauts to focus on higher-level exploration activities. Collaborating with robotics companies like Apptronik, NASA explores the adaptability of humanoid robots for space and earthly purposes, with Valkyrie’s counterparts like Apollo showcasing versatility in tasks like moving packages and stacking pallets in warehouses and manufacturing plants.
