ESA astronaut Frank De Winne during training with the Japanese robotic arm (JRMS). During this training the astronauts practice moving a payload from the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV) to its final location on the outside of the Japanese Kibo laboratory. In this photograph De Winne has the task of steering the robotic arm, whilst ESA astronaut André Kuipers (out of frame) takes on the role of steering the cameras and helping to keep an eye on the operations - in particular to help avoid any collisions.
