A Humanoid Robot that Fixes Satellites

more at IEEE Spectrum:

Justin is a dexterous humanoid robot that can make coffee. Now it’s learning to fix satellites.

Justin was developed at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), in Wessling, Germany.

The robot has different configurations, including one with wheels. The space version has a head, torso, and arms, but no wheels or legs, because it will be mounted on a spacecraft or satellite.
