Canada begins work on new Canadarm3 robotic arm for future lunar outpost Gateway

Canadarm3 will fly to NASA’s future Gateway space station in five years or so on the back of a lucrative new design contract drawn from previous program funding, Canadian space officials vowed.

The robotic arm, key to building the Gateway space station that will play a key role in NASA’s Artemis program’s series of manned lunar missions, has been awarded a $730 million ($999.8 million Canadian) design and test contract. on Thursday (June 27) by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). This will allow Canadarm3 to launch no earlier than 2029.
