The upgrades will be carried out by NASA’s Shane Kimbrough and Thoms Pesquet of the European Space Agency (ESA). They will “install and deploy the second of six new ISS Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSA),” according to NASA’s announcement.
If you’re listening in, Pesquet will be referred to as extravehicular crew member 1 (EV 1) and will sport red stripes on his spacesuit. Kimbrough will be referred to as extravehicular crew member 2 (EV 2) with an unmarked spacesuit. Inside the ISS, NASA’s Megan McArthur will be commanding the robotic arm that moves Pesquet and the array toward the installation location outside the space station.
This is the fifth time Pesquet and Kimbrough have done a spacewalk together, with Kimbrough having stepped outside the lab four other times as well.
You’ll be able to find the stream on NASA Television, the NASA website, and the NASA app, as well as the YouTube player above.
