Robot and man in space - level 2

27-12-2013 06:00

People released a video. It shows a small Japanese robot and a man at a space station.

The robot has been at the space station since August 10th. It has been conducting experiments there. It is controlled remotely from Earth.
The man arrived at the space station on November 7th. When they met, the robot said that it was happy to see the man. Then the pair discussed zero gravity and the robot said he was already used to it.

With Christmas approaching, the two are also looking forward to a visit from Santa. The robot wishes for a toy rocket.

Difficult words: conduct (organise and do), remotely (from far away), approach (come).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
