In order to test a new emergency rescue system, the robot was the Soyuz rocket's only passenger. Alexander Bloshenko, the Russian Space Agency's Director for Prospective Programmes and Science said that during its 10 days at the ISS, Fedor will learn new skills such as connecting and disconnecting electric cables, using standard items from a screwdriver and a spanner to a fire extinguisher.
