Japan’s first robot astronaut, Kirobo, recently completed its first mission aboard the International Space Station.

Now, Mirata – a second robot that stands 34cm (13.4in) tall – is soon to take its turn space.

It’s all part of a Toyota-backed project to try to understand how humans interact with robot companions capable of recognizing faces and maintaining a conversation.
