Canadarm3: en route to the Moon

The central medallion is a window to Canadarm3, Canada's next major contribution to future space exploration. It will be an essential component of the Lunar Gateway, seen in the background. Resembling a stamp, the border highlights the importance of the Canadian robotic system, which will mark another milestone in the history of space robotics. The textured representation of the Canadarm symbolizes technology development. The imposing Moon is humanity's next space destination, whereas Mars, lower down, is the target of future human space missions, for which Gateway will be the launching pad. The small elements in the background illustrate different facets of space exploration. (Credit: Canadian Space Agency)
