KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. --  In the Space Station Processing Facility, or SSPF, at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, sections of the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator, known as Dextre, are lined up under cover.  In front of them is a poster that illustrates the assembled third and final component of the mobile servicing system on the International Space Station.  Dextre will work with the mobile base and Canadarm2 on the station to perform critical construction and maintenance tasks.  Dextre is part of the payload scheduled on mission STS-123, targeted to launch Feb. 14, 2008.  Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton KSC-07pd2367
