KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, a crane lifts the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator, known as Dextre, to position it onto a pallet.  Processing of the payload is under way for its mission to 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/Kim Shiflett KSC-07pd2562
