"Soon, we plan an experiment aimed at delivering an anthropomorphic robot to the orbit," he said. "The experiment is tentatively scheduled for 2024."

In late March 2021, Android Technics signed a contract with the Russian space agency Roscosmos on developing a new-generation robotic system designed for spacewalks. The first stage will be completed in late February 2022 to produce the prototype of scientific equipment for the first stage of tests. The tech firm is currently working on the make up of the humanoid robot, its components and protocols of docking with the ISS.

The 72nd International Astronautical Congress is running at the Dubai World Trade Center under the aegis of the International Astronautical Federation on October 25-29. The congress has brought together the heads of space agencies from different countries, space industry representatives, equipment producers and scientists specializing in space-related problems.
