Like his good Russian friend Sergej on earth who, was also a part of the “Zvezdnyy” (starlight) program, DR-656 loves watching space craft take offs. Unfortunately he had been sent to retirement just shortly after his craft had arrived on Kepler-22, due to the new class 4 robots that took over his work.
He was also part of the Test pilot crew when the new thrusters were developed. Click here for more information on Sergej 🙂
Here’s a closeup of DR-656. Looks like he could use a good shower or a derusting bath one of these days.
In the end I actually liked the departing spacecraft almost more than the rest of the image 🙂
The metal and the reflections turned out better than I’d expected them to.
