First ever conversation between human and a robot, in space

The first ever documented conversation between a human and a robot just took place in the International Space Station (ISS) between Japanese commander Wakata and robot Kirobo.

Kirobo is a small humanoid robot designed to serve as a companion for astronauts who normally spend several months in space before returning to earth. This implies extended periods of time of isolation from human-human interactions which is also something that is expected as plans are made for longer-term space missions (as for example within the Mars One project).

The following video shows parts of the conversation that was documented in ISS last days, between Kirobo and Wakata.
