An AI Robot on the International Space Station Just Threw a Tantrum

Everyone can get a bit aggitated in space, it turns out robots aren't immune to it either!

Cimon is an AI Robot that was sent up to the International Space Station in July as a mobile companion for astronauts. 

The European Space Agency has posted the first video of Cimon with German astronaut and geophysicist Alexander Gerst and the robot starts off being lovely and nice, things heat up and Cimon throws a bit of a tantrum. 

It's entertaining to say the least and it proves spending long enough in space can send anyone crazy! 

Take a look below: 

Sounds like the start to a horror movie in space but we hope they become friends again.
