Known as Valkyrie, the NASA robot could help to set up a colony ahead of the first astronauts on Mars.
The impressive robot, which stands almost six feet tall and weighs in at over 20 stone, looks like something that just walked off the set of a science fiction movie.

Designed for use in future missions to Mars, the robot is currently being developed as part of a collaboration between NASA and two universities where scientists will be working to improve its handling and walking capabilities as well as its capacity to interact with its human colleagues. – See more at: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/news/294160/humanoid-robot-is-preparing-to-go-in-to-space#sthash.eTWvvnwg.dpuf
