ISS spacewalk with David Saint-Jacques and Anne McClain! Watch again.  Experience the walk stay with us. They say it is hard work👷‍♂️👷‍♀️The two astronauts were in space for six hours and 29 minutes.  

Coverage starts: 6:30 am EDT (1030 GMT).  Spacewalk begins: 8:05 am EDT (1205 GMT). The spacewalk will last about 7 hours.

The objectives of this spacewalk include: – Removal and stowage of a recently-installed lithium ion battery that has failed.  Installation of an old nickel hydrogen battery to replace the failed lithium ion battery. Routing of network cables and expansion of wireless Ethernet capability. Miscellaneous “kitchen sink” tasks that didn’t fit in other spacewalks.

Flight Engineers Anne McClain and David Saint-Jacques are readying their spacesuits and tools for a spacewalk.  The spacewalking duo will install truss jumpers to provide a redundant power source to the Canadarm2 robotic arm.

Anne McClain: is currently a part of the Expedition 58/59 crew that launched to the International Space Station in December 2018. Anne learned some of her aeronautical skills from University of Bath and University of Bristol.  We like her UK connection.  Also hope her space suit fits😄

David Saint-Jacques: He is from Quebec.  David has a medical degree along with his engineering and physics skills.

On March 22, the first spacewalk in the series was completed by McClain and fellow NASA astronaut Nick Hague. On March 29, the second spacewalk was completed by Hague and NASA astronaut Christina Koch.

Will you be watching?  It is going to be an extraordinary experience for both astronauts.
