Chris Hadfield

Chris A. HadfieldChris Austin HadfieldFirst Canadian to Walk In Space
Hadfield was selected to become one of four new Canadian astronauts from a field of 5,330 applicants in June 1992. Three of those four (Dafydd Williams, Julie Payette and Hadfield) have flown in space. He was assigned by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas in August, where he addressed technical and safety issues for Shuttle Operations Development, contributed to the development of the glass shuttle cockpit, and supported shuttle launches at the Kennedy Space Center, in Florida. The fourth candidate, Michael McKay resigned as an astronaut in 1995.


Remote Manipulator SystemRMSrobotic arm
Astronaut Judith Resnik developed the NASA software and onboard operating procedures for the system. In all, five arms—Nos. 201, 202, 301, 302, and 303—were built and delivered to NASA. Arm 302 was lost in the Challenger accident. The original Canadarm was capable of deploying and retrieving payloads weighing up to 332.5 kg in space. In the mid-1990s the arm control system was redesigned to increase the payload capability to 3293 kg in order to support space station assembly operations. While able to maneuver payloads with the mass of a loaded bus in space, the arm motors cannot lift the arm's own weight when on the ground.

Raymond McKay

In 1954, McKay was elected as one of the union's vice presidents. Three years later, Wilbur Dickey resigned the presidency and McKay took the position on January 17, 1957. Later that year, on October 29, 1957, McKay and then-president of the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association H.L. Daggett signed an accord leading BME to merge with several MEBA locals. The newly formed entity was known as MEBA's Great Lakes District Local 101. In 1960, after an internal reorganization of MEBA, this entity was now known as "District 2 MEBA." McKay served as the union's president until his death on August 9, 1993. He was succeeded as president by his son, Michael McKay.
