Spacewalk to Prepare the International Space Station for Solar Array Upgrades
Early riser? Watch two humans work in the vacuum of space on Sunday, Feb. 28! NASA astronauts Kate Rubins and Victor Glover will exit the orbital lab’s Quest airlock at about 6 a.m. EST to begin assembling and installing modification kits required for upcoming solar array upgrades.
Once the duo set their spacesuits to battery power, the spacewalk is scheduled to last approximately six-and-a-half hours. Read more about the International Space Station’s solar array upgrades here: www.nasa.gov/feature/new-solar-arrays-to-power-nasa-s-international-space-station-research
