The robot's name is Sonny.

a short history of the robot is in the link below. Literary credit goes to the Czech writer Karel Capek.
The first woman to work for NASA was Nancy Boggess.
There are humanoid robots, military robots, insect robots, and space robots. There are more kinds of robots too.
NASA is an acronym for National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
The names of the space shuttles are: Columbia, Enterprise, Challenger, Atlantis, Discovery and Endeavour. And here is some interesting information about each one: Columb…ia (OV-099) - 1st reusable space shuttle to orbit Earth. First launched on April 12, 1981, the 20th anniversary of the first human spaceflight (Soviet Air Force pilot Maj. Yuri Gagarin on Apr. 12, 1961); Vehicle lost with crew of seven aboard near conclusion of STS-107/Spacelab mission during re-entry on Feb. 1, 2003 over the state of Texas. Enterprise (OV-101) - Originally was to be named "Constitution" by president Gerald Ford, but was changed after a write-in campaign by fans of the 1960's " Star Trek " TV series. Orbital Vehicle #101 was used for the initial Approach & Landing Tests (ALTs) of the Space Transportation System (STS) at NASA-Dryden Flight Reseach Center, Edwards AFB, Calif. It later performed "fit checks" at launch pads 39A and 39B at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida and SLC-6 (Space Launch Complex #6) at Vandenberg AFB, Calif. Once planned to be retrofitted for orbital flight, it was deemed too heavy and cost-prohibitive to be accomplished. It is currently on display at the National Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Annex next to Dulles International Airport in McLean, Virginia, but is scheduled to be relocated to the Intrepid Air-Sea-Space Museum in New York City. Challenger (OV-102) - Second operation vehicle made its public debut during 4th of July ceremonies at NASA-Dryden while president Ronald Reagan attended landing of space shuttle orbiter Columbia after mission STS-4, declaring the STS program "fully operational." Flew first flight on STS-6 in 1984. Vehicle lost on Jan. 28, 1986 with crew of seven approximately 73 seconds into flight during mission STS-51L over the Atlantic Ocean after launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A combination of a design deficiency in the solid rocket boosters (SRBs), compounded by lower than normal and freezing temperatures overnight played contributing factors in the failure of "O" rings in the SRBs Atlantis (OV-103) - Currently in use; Scheduled to fly the last shuttle mission in the 30-year history of the STS program in June 2011 after which it will be placed on permanent display at the Kennedy Space Center. Discovery (OV-104) - The "workhorse" of the fleet, completing the most diverse space missions in the history of the program, including two "Return to Flight" missions after the loss of Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003. Recently completed its final mission in 2011 and is slated to be placed on permanent display at the National Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Annex next to Dulles International Airport in McLean, Virginia. Endeavour (OV-105) - Built as replacement to Challenger; name chosen during a nation-wide contest by school children. It utilizes the British spelling and is named in honor of Capt James Cook's ship of exploration. Scheduled to launch on its 25th and final flight no earlier than May 2, 2011. Scheduled to be placed on permanent display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, Calif. across from the campus of the University of Southern California (USC).
It's like naming your car. The manufacturer uses a name to distinguish the make/model. Chevrolet Impala LTZ is the name assigned to a particular vehicle model type. But I …may call OUR particular car, Lizzy, Amanda or Fred. It's the same thing with robots. The manufacturer can assign a make/model name, and the owner can call it whatever he/she wants.
It's less expensive than sending astronauts, and can still get a lot of science done.

So that humans are not in the danger because building a robot is easier than replacing a life
The name of the robot in movie robot is chitti. Doc.Vasiegaran made it .
Originally the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was called NACA, The National Advisory Committee forAeronautics which was founded in 1915 and in 1958 was …dissolved andall its personnel and assets were transferred to the newly formedNASA. . btw- NACA was pronounced as letters not as an acronym likeNASA
In The Moon
Sending robot spaceships to the moon was known as the Surveyor program. They sent seven robotic spaceships to the surface of the moon from June 1968 to January 1968. The prima…ry purpose was to demonstrate the feasibility of soft landings on the moon.
