Tim Kopra readies equipment for Friday’s spacewalk which will be broadcast live on NASA TV.

The crew is involved in a number of different experiments today, including more fluid shift studies, the SPRINT experiment, and experiment Matroyshka-R.

Tim Kopra was taking part in the SPRINT experiment today, which evaluates the use of high intensity, low volume exercise to minimize loss of muscle, bone and cardiovascular function.

Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko is working with Matroyshka, which measures radiation dosages aboard the International Space Station.

Tim Kopra, Time Peake, and Yuri Melenchenko will be reviewing medical training and CPR procedures today.

NASA TV will be broadcasting Friday’s spacewalk starting at 6:30 a.m. EST: www.nasa.gov/nasatv

  1. Hello., I am Rebecca I am 12 and I am in New Zealand. I am at Mt Maunganui which is a really nice beach where we spend our summer holidays. Last night I got up to watch the space station go over our house because I am interested in it after watching documentaries about men like you in the space station. I waved at you and wondered what you were doing for Christmas. It is always summer in NZ at Christmas so we all go to the beach. What did you do for Christmas?

    I hope that your space walk on Friday goes really well. I will watch it on TV.


  2. Anyway, our homeplanet Earth is a blue ocean planet.
    I am thankful for the fine view taken by the ISS crew as usual.
    And I hope for you to succeed in spacewalk.

  3. Hey you guys. I’m 11 years old and for class we’re doing a project called genius hour. For my project, I’m seeing if I can go to the ISS (international space station) while I’m a kid. Is this possible? I would really like to go to space.
    Thanks, John
