Russian Spacewalkers Installing Camera System, Science Equipment on Station


www.nasa.gov said:

Two Russian cosmonauts in Orlan spacesuits are venturing outside the International Space Station Friday for a planned 7-hour spacewalk to install photographic and scientific equipment on the hull of the complex. This spacewalk is not related to a recent pair of spacewalks by two NASA astronauts  to replace a faulty ammonia coolant pump

Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy opened the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment at 8 a.m. EST to begin the excursion.

Station Cosmonauts Complete Spacewalk to Deploy Cameras


www.nasa.gov said:

Two Russian cosmonauts in Orlan spacesuits wrapped up a 8-hour, 7-minute spacewalk to attempt the installation of photographic equipment on the exterior of the International Space Station at 4:07 p.m. EST Friday.  

Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy promptly completed the main objective of Fridayís spacewalk -- the installation of a pair of high-fidelity cameras as part of a Canadian commercial endeavor designed to downlink Earth observation imagery Ė but had to remove them later due to an unspecified problem that prevented telemetry from being received on the ground by Russian flight controllers.

ISS Russian Spacewalkers Run Into Snag With Camera Installation

Two Russian cosmonauts in Orlan spacesuits wrapped up a 8-hour, 7-minute spacewalk to attempt the installation of photographic equipment on the exterior of the International Space Station at 4:07 p.m. EST Friday.

Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy promptly completed the main objective of Friday's spacewalk - the installation of a pair of high-fidelity cameras as part of a Canadian commercial endeavor designed to downlink Earth observation imagery -- but had to remove them later due to an unspecified problem that prevented telemetry from being received on the ground by Russian flight controllers.

Because of the issue in activating the cameras, Kotov and Ryazanskiy did not have time to complete the all of their planned tasks, which included the jettisoning of a frame that once held three Micro-Particles Capturer and Space Environment Exposure Device (MPAC & SEED) units for a Japanese space exposure study and the installation of a payload boom.

Friday's spacewalk eclipsed the record for the longest Russian spacewalk set by Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin, who conducted a 7-hour, 29 minute excursion on Aug. 16.
