Dextre and Canadian space robotics
2018-09-17 - Dextre is the most sophisticated space robot ever built. It has a sense of touch similar to our own and is able to repair itself. Canadarm2, the Canadian robotic arm, along with Dextre, Canada's multitalented robotic space handyman, and the Mobile Base System, a moveable work platform and storage location, are Canada's contribution to the International Space Station.
As part of their collaboration for the 2018 edition of Science Literacy Week, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) joined forces with Microfiches to create a series of five posters about space projects. The texts were written by the Canadian Space Agency and visually interpreted by Canadian artists.
