Station Crew Preps Tools for Tuesday Spacewalk

The Expedition 36 crew of the International Space Station finished out the week with scientific research, routine maintenance and preparations for a Tuesday, July 16, spacewalk to complete tasks begun on an excursion earlier in the week.

Following the crew’s daily planning conference with the flight control teams around the world, Flight Engineers Chris Cassidy and Luca Parmitano spent their morning preparing the tools they will use on next week’s spacewalk. During the excursion, currently slated to begin at 8:10 a.m. EDT Tuesday and last about six-hours and 15 minutes, Cassidy and Parmitano will primarily focus on completing tasks they began on their first Expedition 36 spacewalk on Tuesday, July 9. The two spacewalkers will finish the installation of bypass jumpers to provide power redundancy to critical station components, route additional cables for a new Russian Multipurpose Laboratory Module set to arrive later this year and perform additional maintenance and inspection tasks outside the station.
