JSC2004-E-44631 (7 Oct. 2004) --- Paul Williamson and Stephanie Sipila, crew instructors, check out the controls for a simulated version of the International Space Station robotic arm, Canadarm2, in the Multi-use Remote Manipulator Development Facility at the Johnson Space Center. A robotic control station for operating the arm is setup in a mockup of the Cupola module where arm operations will be housed in the future on Station. The Cupola, a dome-shaped module with seven windows, will give astronauts a panoramic view for observing many operations on the outside of the orbiting complex. Today, Station crews use a robotic control computer station located in the Destiny Laboratory to operate the arm. The Cupola is scheduled to be installed on Station in early 2009 and one of the robotic control stations will be permanently placed inside.
