SPACE Mystery Questions of the Week - 3-18-2011

Background - NASA’s humanoid robot unveiled on space station
definition HUMANOID: having form or characteristics looking or acting like a human; android;
Obviously, the electro-mechanical Robonaut pictured above appears a relatively poor match for a humanoid robot in 2011. Recall TOPIO, the bipedal humanoid robot designed to play table tennis against a human being that was developed by a robotics firm in Vietnam, for instance. Why has NASA chosen such a poor specimen?
For starters, TOPIO and his ilk do not have to pass NASA's rigorous Electromagnetic (EMI)Interference/Compatibility Tests for operation on an actual space station as Robonaut seems to have passed.
Mystery Questions of the Week
1) - In which space movie (Title, and videocassette release date) where "NASA" appeared did an attractive female android wear a leather-like mini skirt?
2) - Who was the actress that played the android, and what was the android called in the movie?
3) - What functions did the mystery android fulfill in the spaceship?
4) - Was the mystery android a blonde, brunette, or redhead?
5) - Was the movie set in a year that has now elapsed, in 2011, or in the future?

Still working on this one.

BTW, I don't know if you caught me responce to your answers on my quiz regarding Earhart and Noonan but I needed one of your answers to be a little more specific. Your answer about site #7 being an area where there is the most likelyhood of their bones being located is correct, however I'm looking for something a little more specific.

Never saw the movie so I had to do a lot of research on this one, and I'm still not sure of all my answers.

1) "The Dark side of the Moon" Released directly to video 1990.

2) actress Camilla More, part "Lesli"

3) According all the reviews I read, just sat and talked incessantly.

4) Hair color, Red head, a total guess.

5) Year set in 2022.
