My twin is live on CNN international right now!

R2A is about to be live on TV. It will be in the background of the interviews with Astronaut Anna Fisher

My twin is getting a freshly cleaned suit. It wants to look good for everyone!

Look at this great pumpkin Thad Outhier carved of me and an Astronaut. Can you do better? #R2pumpkin

Gorgeous sunset in Robonaut visor. I'm going to miss Earth, but sunset from Space is even better.

Cool pic of R2A with the Vertical Assembly Building as a backdrop and one with clock.

R2A working with a copy of the task panel I will be working with on ISS.

My team is running through the weight lifting demo with R2A. It is such a show off.

R2A is in press site auditorium. My team is getting it checked out and setup.

R2A is unloaded!

Unpacking Robonaut.

R2A is coming off the truck. Welcome to KSC!

My twin has arrived at KSC. I think my ride is better.

Astronaut crew is getting trained on how to operate me. Thanks twin for standing in for me!

Engineers are working on my leg design. This is the hip joint with weights attached to simulate the future leg.

I am now in flight configuration and position!

They are strapping me in.

Good thing they labeled my box. I was worried they might forget about me.

I'm lowered into flight position! My SLEEPR is installed between some fences that hold me and my SLEEPR place.
