Newly arrived on the International Space Station! Learn all about the ISS Robotic External Leak Locator, a tool that could help sniff out ammonia leaks: go.nasa.gov/1U37CMd.

The IRELL was developed and built by the Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center under the management of the Engineering Directorate at Johnson Space Center.

+vint cerf, one of the fathers of the internet, holds a space tool while visiting +NASA Goddard.  The space tool is part of the Robotic Refueling Mission, a cutting-edge International Space Station technology demonstration that is testing tools, technologies and techniques to refuel and repair satellites in orbit. Dr. Cerf handled a replica of the Safety Cap Tool while touring the NASA's Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office​ Servicing Technology Center on May 26, 2015.
