In this image from June 2002, astronaut Franklin R. Chang-Diaz works with a grapple fixture during a spacewalk on the STS-111 mission to perform work on the International Space Station. The first spacewalk of the mission began with the installation of a power and data Grapple fixture (PDGF) for the station’s robotic arm on the complex’s P6 truss. The PDGF will allow the robotic arm to grip the P6 truss for future station assembly operations. Astronauts Chang-Diaz and Philippe Perrin (with French Space Agency, CNES) went on to install the new fixture about halfway up the P6 truss, the vertical structure that currently supports the station’s set of large U.S. solar arrays.

Chang-Diaz is Hispanic of Costa Rican descent. He is also a veteran of seven Space Shuttle missions, tying the record, as of 2018 for the most spaceflights (a record set by Jerry L. Ross).

在这张2002年6月的照片中,宇航员富兰克林·R·昌迪亚兹(Franklin R. Chang-Diaz)在执行STS-111太空行走的任务中使用抓斗固定装置在国际空间站工作。该任务的第一次太空行走开始于在空间站的P6桁架上安装一个动力和数据抓斗夹具(PDGF),用于空间站的机械臂。PDGF将允许机器人手臂抓住P6桁架,用于未来的空间站装配操作。宇航员昌迪亚兹(Chang-Diaz)和菲利普佩林(Philippe Perrin)(与法国航天局(CNES)合作)继续在P6桁架的一半位置安装新装置,P6桁架是垂直结构,目前支撑着空间站的一系列型美国太阳能阵列。

昌迪亚兹是西班牙裔哥斯达黎加人。他还参加过七次航天飞机任务,与2018年创下的飞行次数最多的纪录(由杰里·l·罗斯(Jerry L. Ross)创下)持平。
