Named "Fedor", for Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research, with the identification number "Skybot F850", the robot is the first ever sent up by Russian Federation.
Since 2002, Soyuz spacecraft has transported astronauts to the International Space Station, but this time for this test flight, this Soyuz-MS spacecraft is carrying Russia's Skybot F-850 robot known as Fedor along with cargo to the space station. The Soyuz rocket is scheduled to dock with the ISS on Saturday, where it will remain until Saturday, September 7.
Soyuz ships are usually manned on such journeys, however on Thursday no people are travelling with a goal to take a look at a brand new emergency rescue system.
Fedor was strapped into a specially adapted pilot's seat, holding a Russian flag in its hand.
Fedor is not the first robot sent into space. The android robot will join the Russian crew of the International Space Station to continue the tests of "the space-designated anthropomorphous system", Roscosmos Director General Dmitry Rogozin said earlier.

The presence of an atmosphere on the Earth is the reason liquid water can exist on the surface, enabling life on the planet. But if an atmosphere were present, it would allow for the force of wind to carry hot air to the other side of the planet.
'The first stage of in-flight experiments went according to the flight plan, ' the robot's account tweeted after reaching orbit.
Fedor copies human actions, a key ability that permits it to remotely assist astronauts and even individuals on Earth perform duties whereas they're strapped into an exoskeleton.
Impressively, some of the first images of Fedor showed the humanoid pumping iron, walking, driving a vehicle and using power tools. Russian media speculated that Fedor-like robots will be used in Russia's Moon programme.
Fedor was first unveiled in December 2016 and is part of Vladimir Putin's strategic plan to conquer the moon for Russian Federation.
