An uncrewed Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft took off from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Thursday morning, carrying the Russian humanoid robot Skybot F-850.
The Skybot F-850, one of the latest versions of Russia's FEDOR robots, was created to be a replacement for humans in everything from rescue work to driving vehicles.
The AI-equipped robot will monitor and report on conditions during the flight.
The spacecraft will arrive at the International Space Station on August 24 for a 13-day stay before returning to Earth.
