NASA Television coverage is underway of today’s spacewalk with Roscosmos cosmonauts to prepare hardware on the Rassvet module for installation on the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module. Coverage of the spacewalk is on NASA Television, the NASA app, and agency’s website.

Expedition 68 Commander Sergey Prokopyev and Flight Engineer Dmitri Petelin, both of Roscosmos, will prepare a radiator on Rassvet for its move to Nauka.

Prokopyev and Petelin will exit out of the Poisk module about 9:20 a.m. EST to begin the approximately seven-hour excursion. Prokopyev will wear a Russian Orlan spacesuit with red stripes, while Petelin will wear a Russian Orlan suit with blue stripes.

This will be the third spacewalk for Prokopyev and the first for Petelin. It will be the tenth spacewalk at the station in 2022 and the 255th spacewalk for space station assembly, maintenance, and upgrades.
