NASA Astronauts Go for Tuesday Spacewalk During CubeSat and Antigravity Suit Work on ISS

The U.S. Quest airlock has actually been set up to host NASA Flight Engineers Kayla Barron and Raja Chari when they set their U.S. spacesuits to battery power on Tuesday at 8:05 a.m. symbolizing the start of a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk. NASA TELEVISION, on the app and the site, will begins its live spacewalk broadcast on Tuesday at 6:30 a.m.
Barron and Chari started Monday readying their spacesuits and staging their spacewalk tools inside QuestMission They were joined later by Flight Engineers Tom Marshburn of NASA and Matthias Maurer of ESA (European Space Agency) for a last procedures review and a conference with experts on the ground.

Two Expedition 66 astronauts remain in final preparations today for Tuesdays spacewalk after objective supervisors gave the final go early Monday. NASA TV will transmit a live rundown today at 2 p.m. EDT with International Space Station managers discussing the upcoming spacewalk activities.

NASA Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei focused on another upcoming external job as he set up a little satellite deployer inside the Kibo lab module on Monday. He placed the deployer inside Kibos airlock where it will be grappled by the Japanese robotic arm, put in the vacuum of deep space, and pointed far from the station. Soon a set of CubeSats will be released into Earth orbit for a variety of clinical and educational research study activities.
The two cosmonauts in the stations Russian section, Commander Anton Shkaplerov and Flight Engineer Pyotr Dubrov, continued studying the efficiency of an antigravity fit that might offset the effects of living in area. Called the lower body negative pressure fit, it has the capability to draw fluids that pool towards a crew members head to the legs and feet expanding veins and tissues. This may avoid space-caused head pressure and vision problems in addition to relieving a humans go back to Earths gravity.
