Japanese android eats fried rice

This is not very nice. See why in the video below:

Seriously, if you want to have robots doing the work in space, they are getting quite good. Here's an example below:

If a robot can be developed which can do things that require some intelligence and autonomy, and for doing things that are too inconvenient or dangerous to use people, why not? But this shouldn't preclude humans in space. It would be like all machines. It would help augment your capabilities and make those things that are too expensive and difficult- less so.

By using tele-operation and semi-autonomous robots, you can save the expense of having to provide life support on a constant basis or as large a basis- in space. A smaller contingent of humans can supervise the machines and do plenty of work.
