Two Russian cosmonauts inaugurate one of the most anticipated projects on the ISS.
over our heads flies over one of the largest wits created by the human being and a scientific reference when it comes to aspiring to understand the mysteries unresolved from universe. The International Space Station is back in the news, we have already told you about our devices within their modules for example, and it does so with one of the most spectacular robots never sent to outer space.
The landing of the European Robotic Arm and its activation have been a complete success on board the ISS
If it was already a milestone project the construction of a robot like the one that has been created under the acronym IT WASimagine what it must have meant for those who devised its first sketches 30 years ago over time and have had to overcome decades of setbacks in the form of technical problemswith the loss of three missions to the International Space Station already scheduled during the last 20 years. However, we already have up there the robotic arm ready for to help to the astronauts in their spatial tasks and in the Tweet under these lines you can see the moment from his start up.

The European Robotic Armas indicated on the ESA website, has a length of 11 metersweighing more than 600 kilograms, 7 boards to be able to maneuver and a curious compass shape. The installation of this robot will suppose an enormous help for him russian module, which currently lacks this type of technology. In fact, two cosmonauts from the country have been the architects of its set-up: Oleg Artemyev and Denis Matveev.
The robot WAS joins, in this way, Canadarm2 and the Remote Manipulation System of the Japanese Experimental Module. Like the new robotic arm, these wits are used for the transport of certain goods and even for the astronauts can move around the Exterior of the International Space Station.
It seems that five trips will be necessary for ERA to be up and running in a fully functional manner, having performed a first trip to install the control Panel and this second for start it up for the first time. It will be in the month of may of this 2022 when the third travel and when we continue to marvel at the work of the human being beyond Earth.
