Canadarm

The Canadarm: Canadarm is a robotic arm that used to move whatever was in the cargo bays of space shuttles, and to help repair satellites, or the ISS (International Space Station). The Second version (Canadarm2) was Canada's contribution to the ISS (International Space Station). The Canadarm was invented by Canadian space company called Spar Aerospace in 1981.

Canada's Contribution: A Canadian company called MDA Space Missions, built the Canadarm2 in 2001 as a contribution to the ISS (International Space Station). It is stronger and more brute than the Canadarm.

How did it happen?: In 1969, Canada was invited to NASA, to participate in the space shuttle program. NASA was looking for a manipulator system to transport objects while in space. As a result, Canada developed the Canadarm in 1981. In 2001, Canada built a new variant of the Canadarm called the Canadarm2 on the ISS (International Space Station).
