    Meet Valkyrie: She’s 6 feet and 2 inches tall, weighs about 300 pounds, and cost $2 million — and one day this humanoid space robot, or more likely her much more advanced descendant, might help humans colonize Mars.

A third group at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, purchased a Valkyrie prototype from NASA.
