Russian Humanoid Robot BLASTS OFF To International Space Station! SECRETS REVEALED

Russian Humanoid Robot BLASTS OFF To International Space Station! SECRETS REVEALED


– Do you think that you’ve
heard the whole truth about the Russian
Terminator humanoid robot that has just been blasted off to the International Space Station? If you wanna know what this
humanoid AI robot really is, why the Russians are actually sending it into space in the first place,
which is a first-time thing, and how this may
interconnect with this puzzle we’ve been unraveling together with military space involvement
in civilian space programs. You’re gonna wanna stay tuned, because you and I are gonna explore facts beyond what’s already been
explained in these headlines. The FEDOR android robot
was created in 2016 after Russia’s Emergencies Ministry gave out a technical assignment. Now, as the FEDOR robot blasts off into space
through an unmanned capsule, keep in mind that this
bugger is six-feet tall, it weighs about 233 pounds,
and can lift up to 44 pounds, so, if you’ve got a real heavy cat, you might be able to have a cat sitter. Seriously though, this
Russian Terminator robot can actually crawl, it can
stand up after falling down, it can get in and out of
a car, and drive a car, use tools, and operate
in a regular building. I’m sure you remember “The
Terminator” movie series where a bunch of robots
actually took over the world through the use of a satellite
system called Skynet, and I gotta tell ya, that movie scared the bejesus outta me. Why did the Russians actually
put this sucker into space? What are they doing? Phase plasma rifle 40-watt range. I don’t think you or I want to see a Terminator Skynet-based future. Roscosmos’ own director
general for this project, his name is Dmitry Rogozin, explains that the humanoid robot is actually being sent out first to prepare for manned
missions to the Moon. First, we’ll send a humanoid robot there, and only after that, we will send humans after we study all the risks and learn to cope with them. Other Russian experts
that were also involved in this project explain that this robot is going to be part of a program to help build a Russian Moon base. My name’s Joe, welcome to Beyond Theory, and if you enjoy this sorta thing, and you want to learn
more beyond the headlines, please do click that

also share this video to help this channel grow. This way we can get some
more stuff out for ya. How does this particular Russian
humanoid mission to the ISS connect in the overall
larger puzzle of space, exploration of space, and
the military involvement? I did a Freedom of Information Act with the United States
Air Force Space Command, and there are some components
of the return I got back that have to do with this
robotic AI technology. As an example, in this particular slide where they’re talking about
exploiting new orbits out there, they say, very clearly, that
there are technology gaps, and they need some refueling, and they also need some servicing
infrastructure in space. And then the role of the
Department of Defense is in protection, as well as, enforcement. Now, you and I both know that
we can’t get humans up there, at least enough of ’em, to be
able to do all these things. Robots, at this point, seem
like the perfect bridge between nothing at all,
and then the extreme risks of having humans in space. In the same request, I
learned that the Air Force was actually very interested in hearing from the U.S.
space agency called NASA. In one of the slides, they reveal, there are technology challenges, and one of those challenges is in the area of autonomy and robotics, as well as radiation protection. Think about it this way, if the Van Allen radiation belts are such a problem right
now, send up the bots, these are the droids you’re lookin’ for. NASA has been developing their Robonaut. – I also, our application
is a bit different, we actually work hand in
hand with the Russians. I didn’t spend a lot of time trying to tie this back to Army. I think that as we go through, you’ll find that there are
actually a lot of connections between our two applications, and if not, then I just gave you a question for the end,
so, you’re welcome. – An assistant to our
maintainers and operators, so that they can be removed from some of the more hazardous tasks, and allow us to maintain and operate our facilities
in a different manner. (bright music) – We are really interested
in giving our robots the ability to think
and learn on their own to be able to interact better with humans. So, our Robonaut is a humanoid form. – I am now isolating the drive. Now, what can I do for you? – We’re really looking to push
the boundaries of science, both on and off of Earth. – And so, those are the types of things that we’re trying to influence, and making sure the coordinate
systems are there in place, so that the robots
understand localization, and have the same
terminology as humans do. And then, finally make
that spacecraft smart. Because the spacecraft on its own can do a lot of this stuff by itself. It has a lot of sensors,
it has a lot of actuators, it has a lot of types of things, you could almost think of it
as a robot in and of itself. We don’t, but that’s okay. Making that autonomous and
making that work with the robots is a really important part, too. – Because the United States
Defense Intelligence Agency was writing about challenges
to security in space, I think it’s pretty
reasonable and rational to take ’em pretty seriously when they say that there are orbital threats. Considering that this FEDOR
robot is actually controlled, partially, at least,
through virtual reality. This bugger’s gonna be
flying spaceships up there. The clincher is that this
FEDOR humanoid robot, also knows how to shoot firearms. And this clip that
you’re seeing right now, coming right out of the Russian military, you could clearly see that the FEDOR robot is shooting targets, using pistols, just like “The Terminator.” Let’s not forget also that way
back in the 1960s and ’70s, then, the Soviet Union
had their Project Almaz, which was a military orbital space station equipped with a space cannon. Cosmonauts back then were actually armed with a handheld laser gun that could disable enemy satellites. An honest idea of what
we’re gonna be seeing in the future, the very
near future for space, and what you think the best option should be for us moving forward. Another robot that’s been developed by the U.S. government’s called Atlas. Atlas has been developed by the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency, DARPA. The Pentagon’s brain, Atlas can
run, jump, and do backflips. Course, even though they’re
not telling us this, if Atlas were up there in zero gravity, it could do all sorts of maneuvers. Now, I need to be very clear with you, I do not believe that there’s any cause
for concern at this time, with regard to this Russian
humanoid AI robot experiment. As you and I think about and contemplate actually going out into space, and the military continues
to make their plans, obviously we’re gonna
need rapid rescue missions for any humans that do happen to go out once things have been explored through this robotic technology. Additionally, repairs that need to be made on the outside of spacecraft
are much better done by robots that don’t get tired over time, as opposed to human
astronauts who have to deal with temperature issues, radiation issues, and the fear of getting
lost out there in space, losing a tool and it’s gone. And yet if the Russians are sending robots with plans to build a
Moon base for themselves, do you think that all the
other space-faring countries on planet Earth are just
gonna sit on their hands and wait for the Russians
to do that first? If you’re diggin’ these
space force deep dives about all these kinds of related subjects, please do click on this video right here, and that’ll get ya to the playlist for this series click. The AI’s gonna take it from you. Can we figure out a way to
get FEDOR to pay taxes for us? If they’re using virtual reality to control this gosh darn thing, ya think that there’s gonna be some kinda, like, video game? Co-control the
International Space Station?

  1. Yo!! Subscribe right here to keep this channel producing content for YOU! http://youtube.com/channel/UCGSmpodHNxrv27S366OS00A?sub_confirmation=1

  2. Im in a gig playingπŸ₯ … cant wait to go home and see what you got this time Joe !!!!!!πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

  3. YOU are starting to hone-in on the Operations.
    Remember that Catherine Austin Fitts says they have invested the 21 – 50 TRILLION dollars in America alone.
    The hardware has to be somewhere…..

  4. Robots, either autonomous or remote controlled are the logical choice for the advanced exploration and setup of any outpost, be it the moon or mars or wherever. You send the materials, you send the bots to build your space base and away you go. No concerns about day or night, no fatigue except mechanical wear, no food, no sleep areas, just a recharge point.

    You mentioned that one can lift 44lb… doesn't sound like much, but if you take gravity into the equation… on the moon that could be 100lbs…. big enough to carry any man borne weapon on earth and as a group, much bigger weapons can be operated.

    Thinking about projectile weapons, you wouldn't need a large calibre one to destroy significant earth targets, just one that can stand the heat of re-entry. Gravity would in fact help cause damage although this would be offset by air resistance. As a theory, if you fired a ceramic slug towards earth with sufficient velocity it would maintain that momentum until it reached atmosphere where it would slow down but get superheated. If that struck something solid it would act like a sabot round by melting the impact point and using the material itself to destroy the contents, similar to anti tank weapons do today….

  5. Russia and China are getting into space and the moon…and the USA is doing what exactly…??..jerking off w Trump stories everyday on television…we need to drop the political drama and get with the program. !! Xo

  6. …maybe we could borrow some tech from the elite classified space programs….ya right !!!

  7. That expression: "it really scared the bejesus out of me" is rather unfortunate and offensive to Christians, so in the name of the much touted jewish pushed 'politically correctness', don't use it ever again. I know the jews are pushing for the use of such derogatory expressions against Jesus, because they hate Him. Their political correctness is only used to ban anything the jews consider that goes against their agenda and so PC is but a one sided policy to advance their agenda.

  8. The FEDOR seems actually to be a rather brilliant idea for Russia to have developed. I agree with you that rescue and emergency repairs are absolutely the critical reasons to develop such systems. VR thought-reactive controls are the wave of the near future for all such devices, and likely all highly sophisticated vehicles and robotics moving forward, so this is where we can say we really are living in the future! This does seem like an interesting piece of technology to be in public awareness, and it does make me wonder what similar technologies are in private sector control that we're not allowed to hear about. Is this really the bleeding edge?

  9. If I had to live on a space ship with one of those sinister looking robots I would become filled with anxiety. Too many sci-fi movies where the robot runs amuck. It is a fascinating video though. Have a happy day Joe!

  10. No THE van Allen belt is no problem they have had gravity shielding since the late 1950s and there are gaps in the field anyway but they won't tell you this obviously

  11. Thank you for the video! I have it on good authority from some friends who engineer robotics for hero JPL projects that this Russian "humanoid" is a complete joke. We are decades ahead of this- the Ruskie robot looks capable, but a Roomba has more capability and better fit and finish. (β™« If I Only Had a Brain β™«)

  12. Good Joe. It makes sense that robots with fine motor skills would be more robust in space then humans.. Especially DEPLOYABLE ones that are slaved to an AI enabled spacecraft.. I sometimes wonder if this intuitive symbiotic idea hasn't been THOUGHT of before?? Good show.

  13. I really like the sexy lil flex the robinoid gives after asking "what can I do for you"….. (is there a ye-ha option??)

    But seriously…. if we already went through the "van0Allen" belts in the 60s (about 20 times) wouldn't ya think we would not need a robot to safely do it again??? (Same for building a moon base…. why do we robot critters to help build a moon base we "in theory and documentation" built and operated since at least the 60s-70s??? )

  14. How long until they are sending those robots out to force vaccinate people that know better not to take their vaccines?

  15. Appreciate your take on this story.
    Thanks.
    Any elaboration on why the msm interest was rather underwhelming, as this is a weapon in space ?
    Also, with CRISPR having gone public for some time now, any idea when we will see the military grade 'augmented' or 'hybrid' cosmonauts going into space ?
