STS-123: Dextre moved to Destiny (NASA) The crews of the shuttle Endeavour and the International Space Station moved the newly-assembled Dextre manipulator to its new home on the ISS Tuesday night. The Canadian-built robot was moved from the pallet it was carried into space in to a grapple fixture on the exterior of the station's Destiny lab module. Astronauts then put the now-empty pallet back into the shuttle's cargo bay. Astronauts then got some time off to rest before pressing ahead with the remainder of the mission, which includes two more spacewalks scheduled for Thursday and Saturday.
