Astronauts went into outer space for technical work on the ISS

According to NASA, American astronauts Victor Glover and Michael Hopkins went into outer space on Saturday for maintenance of the International Space Station.

“Our NASA astronauts switched their spacesuits to autonomous power at 8.14 am ET, marking the official start of today’s spacewalk,” the agency’s Twitter account said.

The astronauts will have to complete tasks that they did not have time to complete during previous spacewalks: remove and move the ammonia jumpers, install the Quest airlock heat shield design amplifier, finish connecting the payload cables on the Bartolomeo platform on the European Columbus module, and replace the wireless antenna on the Unity module. Today’s spacewalk is expected to last 6.5 hours. This year, there have already been four exits under the American program from the ISS.
