    The Essential Canadarm2

    Published on Oct 4, 2017

    Tomorrow on the first spacewalk of Expedition 53, astronauts will install a new latching end effector on the International Space Station’s robotic arm, Canadarm2, to keep that invaluable piece of hardware ready to support the station’s continuing mission. Take a quick look back at the invaluable role played by the “big arm” in assembling the space station and keeping it flying.

    SpaceX CRS-13: Dragon capture, 17 December 2017

    Published on Dec 17, 2017

    The SpaceX Dragon CRS-13 cargo spacecraft was captured with the International Space Station’s robotic Canadarm2 on 17 December 2017. The CRS-13 Dragon spacecraft was launched by SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, on 15 December 2017, at 15:36 UTC (10:36 EST). For SpaceX’s thirteenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-13), the Dragon spacecraft carries almost 2177 kilograms (4800 pounds) of supplies and payloads to the International Space Station. The Dragon spacecraft previously supported the CRS-6 mission in April 2015.

    Space Station crew walks in space to conduct robotics upgrades

    Published on Jan 23, 2018

    Outside the International Space Station, Expedition 54 Flight Engineers Mark Vande Hei and Scott Tingle of NASA conducted the first spacewalk this year Jan. 23 to replace a degraded latching end effector (LEE) on one end of the Canadarm2 robotic arm. There are two redundant end effectors on each end of the arm used to grapple visiting vehicles and components during a variety of operational activities. The spacewalk was the 206th in support of space station assembly and maintenance, the third in Vande Hei’s career and the first for Tingle. Vande Hei will venture outside the station again Jan. 29 with Flight Engineer Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to stow a spare latching end effector removed from the robotic arm last October on to the station’s mobile base system rail car for future use.

    Space Station crew members walk in space to complete robotics upgrades

    Published on Feb 16, 2018

    Outside the International Space Station, Expedition 54 Flight Engineers Mark Vande Hei of NASA and Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) conducted a spacewalk to move a Latching End Effector, or hand, for the Canadarm2 robotic arm into the Quest airlock that was removed during another excursion last October and to move a degraded end effector replaced during a Jan. 23 spacewalk onto a payload attachment device on the station’s Mobile Base System railcar. The spacewalk was the 208th in station history for assembly, maintenance and upgrades, the fourth in Vande Hei’s career and the first for Kanai, who became only the fourth Japanese astronaut to walk in space.
