Image 8 of 17


Astronaut Franklin R. Chang-Diaz works with a grapple fixture during extravehicular activity to perform work on the International Space Station. The first spacewalk of the STS-111 mission began with the installation of a Power and Data Grapple Fixture for the station's robotic arm on the complex's P6 truss. The PDGF will allow the robotic arm to grip the P6 truss for future station assembly operations.
