3D printing – model of Dextre, a versatile robot
2018-10-22 - Dextre is a versatile robot that maintains the International Space Station. Part of Canada's contribution to the Station, it is the most sophisticated space robot ever built.
Dextre tackles the tough or routine jobs that need to be done in the harsh environment of space. The Station's robotic handyman allows astronauts to spend more time doing scientific experiments instead of going on risky spacewalks.
