Canadarm2 – Images of a 10-Year History

2006-12-18 - STS-116 proved to be another important assembly mission, and Canadarm2 was in great demand. It grappled the P5 truss and brought it to the end of the P3/P4 truss, extending the backbone of the Station by over three metres. Canadarm2 also assisted on four spacewalks and provided crucial support during operations on a solar array that required troubleshooting. In this photo, NASA astronaut Robert L. Curbeam Jr. is attached to Canadarm2 as he works on retracting the P6 solar array. (Credit: NASA)
