Spacewalk AMS Repair Outside ISS. The final

Live Spacewalk: Watch as astronauts complete the intricate process of repairing the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS). It’s a dark matter and antimatter detector outside the International Space Station.

Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency (ESA) and Andrew Morgan of NASA performed the fourth and final spacewalk to repair AMS.  It has far outlived its planned three-year lifespan. They were out space-working for 6 hours 6 minutes.  They got the job done even though there were a few leaks on the way.  But the skills of both astronauts won the day.  They succeeded in correcting the problem.

In addition to revitalising an important piece of scientific equipment, the process of creating the tools and procedures for these spacewalks is preparing teams for the types of spacewalks that may be required on Moon and Mars missions.

Is this the kind of job you would like to do? Who knows it could become a regular posting! NASA has a plan for the moon this year along with ESA the European Space Agency. The UK has its connection the ESA so we could well be participating.
