Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin will open the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment to begin their spacewalk Friday at 10:40 a.m. EDT. The duo will spend about 6.5 hours rigging cables for the future arrival of a Russian laboratory module and installing an experiment panel.
