ISS036-E-013254 (28 June 2013) --- Robonaut 2, the first humanoid robot in space, appears to have sprouted legs in this photograph recorded in the Destiny laboratory of the International Space Station. Actually, the scene was intentionally created by a couple of Expedition 36 flight engineers whose precise timing during an off-duty period provided some Shakespearean "comic relief" during a busy week aboard the orbital outpost. Some investigative work by ground personnel led to the conclusion that the legs actually belong to European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano.
