One Small Step for Robot?

Some of you might say I have grammaticality wrong title, but actually it's historically correct(click the phrase, it will get you to a news page about it). But anyway, it is correct that a robot called Robonaut 2 is going into space. It's gonna be in the halftime show of the upcoming super bowl, too.
What's the fuss about it? Turns out, it's the first humanoid(looks like a human) robot ever to go to space. It'll be launched on the space shuttle Discovery this February. It will go to the International Space Station to help astronauts there with things like cleaning the station and sometime in the near future, with extravehicular activities(or spacewalking, you might put it).
