MOSCOW - Russia on Thursday launched an unmanned rocket carrying a life-size humanoid robot that will spend 10 days learning to assist astronauts on the International Space Station .

Soyuz ships are normally manned on such trips, but on Thursday no humans are travelling in order to test a new emergency rescue system. "That's connecting and disconnecting electric cables, using standard items from a screwdriver and a spanner to a fire extinguisher," the Russian space agency's director for prospective programmes and science, Mr Alexander Bloshenko, said in televised comments ahead of the launch.

Such robots will eventually carry out dangerous operations such as space walks, Mr Bloshenko told RIA Novosti state news agency.
