National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has revealed its new robot that will be used for the future interplanetary mission like searching traces if water and extraterrestrial life on the Mars. Named as Valkyrie, the robot appears like a human and what’s striking is that it dance like us. Scientists have given great flexibility to valkyrie due to which it can move, swing arms, move the head and shake body with the beats.

Valkyrie is the fifth version of Robonaut series thus, it is also known as R5. Earlier, R5 was made with an aim of aiding people at the time of disaster, however, now scientists believe that Valkyrie can be used for important missions due to its physical capabilities. According to NASA scientists, the humanoid can be our best bet to explore the Red Planet and search even the most deserted areas for water and hint of life eventually. Valkyrie is the closest human-like robot that not only looks like us but also can move like us.

The humanoid can walk on the rugged terrain of Mars without any support. In addition, American space agency is planning to send the R5 on the Journey to Mars scheduled for 2018. Apart from the Valkyrie, four astronauts will also go to the Mars on the specially designed Orion spacecraft which will be lifted up using NASA’s most powerful Space Launch Station (SLS) rocket.

Moreover, Valkyrie is 6 feet tall while it weighs nearly 290 pounds. In the video, the humanoid is dancing, balancing on one leg, moving head on the beast and waving hands in air. In addition, a NASA logo is imprinted on its heart that lights up according to the beats. The logo makes us think that its heart is beating and the humanoid is alive. Although it can walk like humans on two legs but it is not foolproof and one can easily make out that it is robot walk. Scientists claim that R5 can walk stairs and use tools to perform complicated tasks.
