ESA Euronews: Canada's Robot Masters

Euronews has published a report for the European Space Agency (ESA) on Canada’s expertise in space robotics. “Robots are an essential companion to mankind in space, and many of the modern-day masters of these robots are to be found in Montreal, home to the Canadian Space Agency.”

“Euronews Space has unique access to the team, among them operations engineer Mathieu Caron, who can steer the Canadarm 2 directly from his control room, or instruct astronauts piloting it in space.”
