Canadarm2 anniversary

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the day Canadarm2 was launched to the International Space Station aboard the shuttle Endeavour.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield connected the robotic arm to the station three days later, on the first-ever spacewalk by a Canadian.
The Canadian Space Agency is now in talks about how the Canadarm can be used on commercial spacecraft, after the U-S shuttles retire this year.
