Canadarm2 – Images of a 10-Year History

March 13/14, 2008 - During Shuttle Mission STS-123 Canadarm2 was joined by the Canadian-built Dextre, which Space Shuttle Endeavour delivered to the International Space Station (ISS). Canadarm2 removed the versatile robot from the shuttle's payload bay and transferred it to the ISS. The Station arm also assisted with a spacewalk that gave Dextre a new set of hands called Orbital Replacement Unit/Tool Changeout Mechanisms. In this image, NASA astronaut Rick Linnehan, while anchored to Canadarm2, mimics the gangly Dextre. (Credit: NASA)
