Caption

European robotic arm interface. These controls will be used to operate the European Robotic Arm (ERA), which will be used on the International Space Station (ISS). The arm is 11.5 metres long, and it will be able to move loads of up to 8 tonnes, including cargo and astronauts. It will also be able to move around the outside of the ISS, carrying out automated repairs. The arm, which can be controlled manually from inside and outside the ISS, will be attached to the Zvezda module. The ERA was built in 2005 and is currently being tested. It is scheduled for launch in 2009. Photographed at the ERA construction company, Dutch Space, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
