Robotic Refueling Mission Team

There is another robot at work outside the International Space Station while R2 is beginning work within the station. This is DEXTRE robot built by Canada and working on experiments in robotic refueling of satellites on the ISS exterior. If all goes well, this may extend the life of the ISS as it services satellites never meant for refueling, saving nations a great deal of money.
