    SPACE STATION: Research Environment
    Components of the Exterior:

    • Robotic Canadarm 2

    Canada has taken on the task of designing the Robotic arm to both the Space Shuttle and
    the ISS. This robotic system plays a key role in space station assembly and maintenance:
    moving equipment and supplies around the station, supporting astronauts working in
    space, and servicing instruments and other payloads attached to the space station.

    • Research Modules

    The Columbus Laboratory Module is a 23 foot long by 15 foot wide research facility permanently attached to the station. Inside there are 10 experiment racks about the size of phone booths. Thousands of experiments will be conducted in here based on life sciences, materials sciences, fluid physics and other research in a weightless environment not possible on Earth. In addition, the station crew can conduct experiments outside the module within the vacuum of space, thanks to four exterior mounting platforms that can accommodate external payloads. With a clear view of Earth and the vastness of space, external experiments can run the gamut from the microscopic world of bacteria to the limitlessness of space. The first two experiment packages will fly to the station on the shuttle with the module.
