Astronauts returned to the ISS after installation work in outer space

Expedition members Shane Kimbrough (USA) and Tom Pesquet (France) returned to the International Space Station after working in outer space to install the IROSA solar panel, according to NASA.

The astronauts’ spacewalk, according to NASA, lasted six hours and 28 minutes and ended at 14.10 North American Eastern Time.

In turn, the space division of the Boeing Company in its Twitter microblog congratulated the astronauts on the successful installation of a solar battery. According to the company, the astronauts should install the second panel on Friday, June 25.

The two IROSA panels were delivered to the station by Cargo Dragon in early June. In total, it is planned to mount six such panels outside the American segment of the ISS to generate more electricity.
