ABSTRACT
This article discusses the continued construction of the International Space Station. Construction will be aided with the use of a robotic arm called the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS), which is attached to a wheeled cart that runs on a track. The SSRMS can be relocated to any section of the space station, allowing it full access for construction. It will also be used to receive and park incoming modules and structural elements.
