Testing the Eurobot ‘wet’ model in the Neutral Buoyancy Facility at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany. Eurobot is seen moving around the outside of a model representing Europe’s Columbus laboratory, using the astronauts’ handrails to walk around autonomously. It demonstrates the interaction between a robot and a human by grasping a tool and handing it to the astronaut (shown nine times actual speed).
