Dextre, the International Space Station's versatile robot

2008-04-01 - Dextre's role is to perform maintenance work and repairs like changing batteries and replacing cameras outside the International Space Station (ISS). This reduces the number of risky spacewalks to do routine chores and gives astronauts more time for science, the main goal of the ISS. (Credit: NASA)
