He’s not ET, but he does like to phone home. Meet Kiboro, Japan’s first robot astronaut.

He called home for the first time Thursday from the International Space Station saying robots are making their first step toward a shining future.

Kiboro will help conduct experiments on the station by following voice commands and by remote control from Earth.
