Canadarm2 – Images of a 10-Year History

2011-03-02 - Mission STS-133 represented Space Shuttle Discovery's final flight and it proved to be an overall success. The Express Logistics Carrier, which had been packed with spare parts for the Station, was loaded on to the backbone of the Station by Canadarm2, and later, the Station arm grappled the Permanent Multipurpose Module to the Unity node. Canadarm2 also assisted spacewalkers during their maintenance and repair duties. In this image, NASA astronaut Steve Bowen is framed between two generations of Canadian robotic technologies: Canadarm and Canadarm2. (Credit: NASA)
