The space station’s crew appeared to have a bit of fun while packing Robonaut 2 for its trip home. NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold donned Robonaut 2’s head like a mask for a bit of Twitter photo fun.
“…to seek out new life and new civilizations,” Arnold wrote on Twitter.
Arnold is one of six space travelers on the space station’s current Expedition 55 crew. Joining him on the mission are NASA astronauts Scott Tingle and Drew Feustel, astronaut Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, and cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev and Anton Shkaplerov of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency. Shkaplerov is commander of the station’s crew.
