Vyommitra the Female Robot Will Hurtle into Space in 2020

From Business Insider comes a story that has us wondering if it’s April 1:

India has unveiled a “female” humanoid robot that it plans to launch into space in 2020.

On Wednesday, the country’s space agency – the Indian Space Research Organisation – showcased a prototype of ‘Vyommitra,’ a humanoid robot it describes as “a woman.”

Vyommitra will reportedly speak two languages and will fly on an unspecified unmanned mission this year.

Though the robot appears to be dexterous, it doesn’t seem to have any legs, raising the question of why it needs a physical form at all.

Okay, sorry: we’re not making this up.
