Expedition 30 Commander Dan Burbank shook hands with Robonaut on February 15, 2012, aboard the International Space Station, an historic milestone that completed a two-day checkout of the machine's joints, hands and fingers as a key precursor to future robotic activity on the complex. Approximately five minutes into this video Robonaut can be seen signing the words "Hello, World" to wrap up the exercise. Robonaut is the intricate dexterous humanoid robot built and designed at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX and launched to the station a year ago on the shuttle Discovery on that orbiter's final flight, STS-133
