Canadarm2: How It Works

Canadarm2: How It Works The Canadarm system is one of Canada’s most important contributions to space exploration. Located on the International Space Station, the system is comprised of two separate mechanical arms, each of which performs a separate task. The most recent addition is the Canadarm2, which was designed to aide assembly and maintenance aboard the space station. Astronauts going to the space station require specialized training to use these tools. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with Christophe Belzile, a robotic instructor at the Canadian Space Agency, to learn how the Canadarm2 works, and to get a brief primer in how the astronauts are trained to use it.
