Mission Accomplished: Robot Astronaut Kirobo Returns to Earth
Carol Coolsaet

Hey folks, we have some hot news for you! Remember some time ago (in December 2013 to be exact) we have talked about Kirobo and sending this brave tiny taking robot to International Space Station?

Well, he has just made his way back.

After an impressive 18 months on board the International Space Station, humanoid communication robot Kirobo returned to Earth as a passenger on SpaceX’s CRS-5 Dragon cargo supply spacecraft which successfully splashed down in the Pacific Ocean earlier today.

Now, after this long we have a lot of catching up to do, but we will keep you posted on the results of Kirobo’s mission.

So far, you can recap full project details and future plans here as well as watch our space videos below:
