A Japanese space cargo transporter has arrived at the International Space Station. It was launched into space by a rocket that blasted off from Japan on Sunday. It is carrying close to five and half thousand kilos of supplies and equipment including the first talking humanoid robot.

The mission of the robot Kirobo, which only speaks Japanese and measures 34cm , is to be a companion to Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata onboard the International Space Station.

The project was developed by advertising company Dentsu, auto giant Toyota and the robot’s creator, Tomotaka Takahashi, at the University of Tokyo’s Research Centre for Advanced Science and Technology.
