NASA Scientist Giving an Interview from the Humanoid Carrying Module

Scott Higginbotham of NASA conducted live discussions from the Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) which will include Robonaut 2, or R2, the first humanoid in space. The PMM is currently placed in the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

It was reported that in order to maintain a clean environment, Higginbotham was dressed in a bunny suit, which is a blue cloth that provides effective shielding against contamination. Other than the humanoid, the PMM will carry multifarious equipments and spare parts. The module can provide profound assistance in physics, biotechnology, material science and other microgravity procedures. In between the discussion, a video shot previously featuring the PMM and its interiors was telecasted on the NASA TV.
