Spacewalk 3 AMS Repairs. Complex mission 

Astronauts Andrew Morgan of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency (ESA) will venture outside the International Space Station. Spacewalk due to start at ~6:50 a.m. EST.

They will continue repairing the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) instrument. This is the third in a series of repair spacewalks – the most complex of this kind since the servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope. AMS is attached to the outside of the space station, where it has been operating since 2011. It is a particle physics experiment working to help us understand dark matter and the origins of the universe.

As the lead spacewalker, known as ‘EV1’, Luca will wear a white spacesuit with red stripes while Andrew wears the white spacesuit with no stripes.

Are you watching these amazing scenes?  An outstanding mission by Nasa and Esa don’t you think?  Do you support space missions? Should more be invested in space?

It has been a long day for the astronauts
