Note to Editor/Robotic Refueling Mission in Space: Fueling up in Space

(March 07, 2012)

LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/12 -- Beginning today, Dextre, the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) most dexterous robot is tackling new tasks. CSA is collaborating with NASA on a project called the Robotic Refueling Mission (RRM). The demonstration will use Dextre, the CSA's robotic handyman on board the International Space Station (ISS) to test how satellites could be refueled in space even if they were not designed to be. If the three-day operations are successful, this could mean extending the life of satellites in the future.
