What happened to the robot that was going to be sent up to ISS as a repair bot outside?
I think it's called Robonaut 2. You might find a thread about it in the science and technology forum.
Funny. It already says the Robonaut 2 is only supposed to be used on the interior of the ISS. The Repair robot that I am referring to is supposed to be mounted on the girder system and use The or a version of The Canadian robotic arm.
Perhaps you were thinking of Dextre? (Although, come to think of it, I've also seen the Robonaut depicted as being mounted on the end of the Canadarm, as here.)
