Astronauts To Take More Than 6-Hour-Long Spacewalk Today

SpaceX Falcon 9 GovSat-1 Astronauts To Take More Than 6-Hour-Long Spacewalk Today

The two spacewalkers will move a Latching End Effector (LEE), or hand, for the Canadian-built robotic arm, Canadarm2, from a payload attachment on the station's Mobile Base System rail vehicle to the Quest airlock.

Mark Vande Hei from NASA and Norishige Kanai from the Japanese space agency had to go outside the ISS to relocate deteriorated LEEs (latching end effectors).

Japanese astronaut Norishige Kanai has become the 4th Japanese astronaut to walk in space, outside the International Space Station. The pending work is expected to be completed in a 6.5 hour-long spacewalk, NASA had said in a statement.

The other unit, LEE-B, will stay at the ISS in a long-term storage location.

The spacewalk was rescheduled again to accommodate the February 15 docking of the Russian Progress 69 cargo spacecraft that launched on February 13, NASA said.

Trump cites mental health -- not guns
Kimmel urged people to write their representatives, call them, "and if they don't listen, vote them out of office". Kimmel then addressed the notion that it's too soon to talk about gun-control laws days after a mass shooting .

Vande Hei, an SJU alumnus, arrived at the space station on Sept.12 and will return to Earth later this month.

That LEE will be available as a spare part on the Mobile Base System, which is used to move the arm and astronauts along the station's truss structure. Further, there is an additional and comparatively old LEE on the space system stored in the long-term storage.

Middle and high school students will travel to Alamogordo High School for the call to Expedition 54 astronaut Scott Tingle aboard the space station, posing questions about life aboard the orbital outpost, NASA's deep space exploration plans, and doing science in space.

Initially, the mission outside the International Space Station was planned for January 29th but due to a software glitch in one LEE unit the ground controllers postponed the mission for February 15th.

The goal of the spacewalk was to move some components related to the space station's Canadian-built robotic arm, known as Canadarm2, an aging but crucial piece of equipment which has undergone a series of repairs in recent months. Mark will wear a similar astronauts suit to Neil Armstrong during his expedition to the Moon.
