Russian spacewalk (EVA-43) - August 17, 2017
« on: 08/12/2017 11:21 AM »
August 11, 2017
MEDIA ADVISORY M17-091

NASA Television to Air Six-Hour Spacewalk at International Space Station
 
Two Russian cosmonauts will venture outside the International Space Station Thursday, Aug. 17, to deploy several nanosatellites, collect research samples and perform structural maintenance. Coverage of the spacewalk will begin at 10 a.m. EDT on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Expedition 52 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy, of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, will don their spacesuits and exit the station's Pirs airlock at approximately 10:45 a.m.

Ryazanskiy will begin the schedule of extravehicular activities with the manual deployment of five nanosatellites from a ladder outside the airlock. The satellites, each of which has a mass of about 11 pounds, have a variety of purposes.

One of the satellites, with casings made using 3-D printing technology, will test the effect of the low-Earth-orbit environment on the composition of 3-D printed materials. Another satellite contains recorded greetings to the people of Earth in 11 languages. A third satellite commemorates the 60th anniversary of the Sputnik 1 launch and the 160th anniversary of the birth of Russian scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky.

The spacewalkers also will collect residue samples from various locations outside the Russian segment of the station and install handrails and struts to facilitate future excursions.

Yurchikhin will be designated extravehicular crew member 1 (EV1) for this spacewalk, the ninth of his career. Ryazanskiy, embarking on his fourth spacewalk, will be extravehicular crew member 2 (EV2). Both will wear Russian Orlan spacesuits bearing blue stripes. The spacewalk will be the 202nd in support of space station assembly and maintenance and the seventh spacewalk this year.

There's very little info out there, so fair play to the above site for doing some leg work. Have an article ready for the start of the EVA, but will take the angle of mainly covering related ISS info.

Another pic of the satellites - PS AS always, this is interactive, so don't leave it to any one person to have to cover the entire EVA. I'd rather have duplicate updates that someone stuck to their seat for six hours. :)

Airlock was depressurized at 1418 UTC and the hatch was open at 1437 UTC.
Sounds like Fyodor and Sergey are now (1444 UTC) heading out of the airlock.

It may be interesting to note that the cosmonauts have not done any underwater training for this EVA for the simple reason that the neutral buoyancy facility at Star City has been out of action for maintenance since late 2014. The sole way of simulating EVAs now is to use a simulator called Vykhod-2 (Egress-2), which was introduced in 2002. Here's a video showing cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev undergoing training in the simulator:

(I don't really have time for coverage but... maybe one or two posts)

Fyodor is back to Pirs module, and both of the cosmonauts will head to install handrails around Pirs and on the other side (is it Poisk?). When asked about his new EVA suit, he responded
"I'm really fine, this is OK. Maybe a little warm, we're moving a lot". The heating was then reduced.

I have to be out for the next half hour or so but will try and jump in after that.
At some point they are going to decontam themselves by wiping with towels and then jettisoning the towels - if someone can
get the towel jettison time that would be ace!

Many thanks. I'll go for a walk, back in an hour for the final two of the EVA.

Normally we'd have people chipping in all the time, but there's a strange lack of interest in this EVA for some reason.

(Well, I'm trying, who needs to eat anyway)

Not an easy time: a lot of material to transfer to the other side around Poisk. Both cosmonauts are at it. For obscure reasons, no one is using bags and since it's night time it seems probably a lot more messy than it is for real, but right now they are trying to move handrails and experiments.

Images are beautiful, but the task is far from easy. Both cosmonauts trying to attach this handrail/support. Heavy breathing and taking turns.

In the end Fyodor got it the russian way, by hitting it with its (brand new suit) glove.

Wonderful view, yet they are both tired.

Sergeď did point the experiment down. Don't know if this is because of the translation, but Fyodor seems to take authority, directing Sergei to move here and there quite a lot (maybe it's russian style, usually not like this on USOS EVA)

Was wondering the same thing. Another exposure experiment panel to be attached to the handrail? Maybe one
of the SKKs? [Edit: there's a montage of experiments for the EVA somewhere that shows SKK No. 9-SM
as one of the things to be installed, do we have it somewhere?]

SKK No. 9-SM is located on Zvesda, was installed in February 2007. Today the cosmonauts took only pictures there.

Per ISS 101, this was a Vinoslivost panel that they were moving out of the way to do a handrail
installation and it came loose, so they had to stick is back on

It may be interesting to note that the cosmonauts have not done any underwater training for this EVA for the simple reason that the neutral buoyancy facility at Star City has been out of action for maintenance since late 2014. The sole way of simulating EVAs now is to use a simulator called Vykhod-2 (Egress-2), which was introduced in 2002. <snip>

I assume there are no other neutral buoyancy facilities in Russia, or in the former Soviet Union?

I assume that they can't/choose not to pay for such training in a foreign facility?

It all seems like a great operational risk.

When is the Star City NBF expected to return to operation?

Aren't there multiple EVA's required to prepare for and execute the installation of Nauka?

Thank you to everyone who assisted with the EVA coverage on this thread!

Russian-EVA-43 patch. For the first time in history a (space) patch was designed on Earth and in space !!! Spacepatches.nl designer Luc v/d Aabelen worked with Cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, who was already onboard the International space station at that time, on this design for the 43rd EVA by Russian cosmonauts from ISS. Patches were produced by Spacepatches.nl and fellow EVA-43 spacewalker Sergey Ryazanskiy who launched with Soyuz MS-05 to ISS brought the patches with him. The EVA was on August 17, 2017 and lasted 7 hours and 34 minutes.
