Dextre makes the cut: Wire Cutting task is a resounding success! Part 2

Day 2 of the initial phase of the joint NASA-CSA Robotic Refueling Mission (RRM) ended with a historic moment for Dextre, the Canadian-built robotic handyman on board the International Space Station (ISS). Dextre spent the better part of the day successfully releasing 7 launch locks that fastened 4 tool adapters (built by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center) inside the RRM module during their flight to the International Space Station.
