KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. --  A poster in the Space Station Processing Facility, or SSPF, at NASA's Kennedy Space Center illustrates the assembled Dextre, the third and final component of the mobile servicing system on the International Space Station.  The Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator will work with the mobile base and Canadarm2 on the station to perform critical construction and maintenance tasks. The poster sits in front of the draped sections in the SSPF.  Dextre is part of the payload scheduled on mission STS-123, targeted to launch Feb. 14, 2008.
