Engineer Court Edmondson and soft goods designer Heather Bibby help Robonaut 2 try on its new flight suit. The materials in R2's "skin" were upgraded in preparation for the robot's journey to the International Space Station due to the station's stringent flammability requirements. R2 is scheduled to launch on board space shuttle Discovery as part of the STS-133 mission. Photo credit: NASA or National Aeronautics and Space Administration
