Caption: European robotic arm on the ISS. Artwork of the European Robotic Arm (ERA) in use on the International Space Station (ISS). The arm will be 11.5 metres long, and will be able to move loads of up to 8 tonnes. Here, it is being used to move an astronaut, reducing the need for complicated EVAs (space walks). The arm can be controlled from inside and outside the ISS. It will be attached to the Zvezda module of the ISS. The ERA was built in 2005 and is currently being tested. It is scheduled for launch in 2009. The ISS, which orbits some 330 kilometres above the Earth, is scheduled for completion in 2010.
