Spacewalkers Installing Camera Platform, Inspecting Station


www.nasa.gov said:

Two Russian cosmonauts clad in Orlan spacesuits began their second spacewalk within the span of a week when they opened the hatch to the International Space Stationís Pirs docking compartment at 7:34 a.m. EDT Thursday.   During their excursion slated to last about five hours, 40 minutes, Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin will replace a laser communications experiment with a new platform for a small optical camera system, move a foot restraint and inspect several sites for the origin of a wayward antenna cover observed on Monday.

Another Walk in Space for Russian Cosmonauts

Clad in Russian Orlan spacesuits, Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin conducted their second spacewalk in six days outside the International Space Station to replace a laser communications experiment for a platform upon which a small optical telescope will be mounted in the future and to remove a visual alignment target on the docking port of the Pirs Docking Compartment.
