The space shuttle Endeavour is scheduled for its last mission, and itís cargo will hold an entirely new piece of measuring instrument called Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS).

A geminoid robot is a robot that is made specifically to mimic the appearance of a human being, the goal of course is to make a robot that is so similar to a real person that you couldn't tell them apart.
There are a few impressing geminoids out there, the latest being the Geminoid DK, in fact if you were to look at a still picture of him you probably wouldn't see it was just a machine in a human costume. That is, if it wasn't a close up.
So far though, all doubts wether they are real persons or not are dismissed as soon as they start to move.
