ZVYOZDNY GORODOK /Moscow Region/, July 8. /TASS/. Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko said Wednesday that during a flight to the International Space Station (ISS) he will conduct an experiment to remotely control robots located on Earth from the orbit.
"Being on board the station, I will remotely control two robots — one situated in the Central Research Institute of Robotic Systems in St. Petersburg and the second one located in an institute in Munich. The goal is to practice control of on-planet robots," Kononenko said answering a question from TASS.
He specified that the talk is about a joint Russian-German experiment entitled "Contour 2".
