What are the advantages of having humanoids in space?
Humanoids can function in weightlessness or artificial gravity without motion sickness that human astronauts often have during space flights. Humanoids can better function in high G-force states during rocket liftoff, acceleration and reentry. There is no blackout period and there is no blood to rush away from the brain.
Humanoid don't eat crumbly food which goes weightless and floats around in the space cabin, which can be an accident waiting to happen if crumbs go into sensitive or vital equipment and cause failure. Humanoids can focus on the task at hand, and probably not spend too much time staring out of the window in emotional awe of space.
Humanoids may not need food or water, just a source of electricity, to charge batteries, which may come from solar panels in space. Humanoids can be programmed to handle the weightless disorientation of being in space where up may become down. Humanoids can nap and sleep very effectively to conserve energy and are not easily distracted. Humanoids can have a greater range of functioning over a wider temperature span.
Humanoids can handle space radiation better with a small amount of lead shielding over their circuits and prolonged exposure to radiation is not a problem with replacement of failing components. Humanoids can better handle the vacuum of space and don't need air to breathe.
