An Orbital Sunrise & Canadarm2 | International Space Station

An Orbital Sunrise & Canadarm2 | International Space Station

An orbital sunrise begins illuminating Earth's atmosphere with the International Space Station's Canadarm2 robotic arm extending from the orbital lab as it soared 260 miles above the Pacific Ocean.

The Mobile Servicing System (MSS), is a robotic system on board the International Space Station (ISS). Launched to the ISS in 2001, it plays a key role in station assembly and maintenance; it moves equipment and supplies around the station, supports astronauts working in space, and services instruments and other payloads attached to the ISS and is used for external maintenance. Astronauts receive specialized training to enable them to perform these functions with the various systems of the MSS.

The MSS is composed of three components:

a) the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS), known as Canadarm2.

b) the Mobile Remote Servicer Base System (MBS).

c) the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM, also known as "Dextre").

Expedition 67 Crew

Commander Oleg Artemyev (Russia)

Roscosmos Flight Engineers: Denis Matveev and Sergey Korsakov (Russia)

NASA Flight Engineers: Kjell Lindgren, Bob Hines, Jessica Watkins (USA)

European Space Agency (ESA) Flight Engineer: Samantha Cristoforetti (Italy)

An international partnership of space agencies provides and operates the elements of the International Space Station (ISS). The principals are the space agencies of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada. The ISS has been the most politically complex space exploration program ever undertaken.
