Success! With a bit of strength and skill, @Astro_illini removed the H-fixture from the @Space_Station, opening the slot for future solar array system upgrades. Now, he and @AstroVicGlover are returning to the airlock to wrap up today's spacewalk.
The spacewalkers are nearing the end of today's spacewalk after installing a science antenna and prepping the station for solar array upgrades. #AskNASA |
Today’s spacewalk helps expand science capabilities on the @Space_Station through work on @ESA's Bartolomeo facility. Potential applications of this new facility include Earth observation, robotics, material science and astrophysics research. Learn more:
Are you watching?! @AstroVicGlover is already outside @Space_Station for his very first spacewalk, with @Astro_illini. Here he is pictured in the airlock with the new antenna they are installing on the Columbus module. Tune in on NASA TV
