Russian spacewalk (EVA-43) - August 17, 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.

Today, together with Fyodor and @SergeyISS, we did the dress rehearsal for their next  #spacewalk: everything looks good and we are ready!

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. :)

Fyodor and Sergey are in the airlock and completed a 10 minute pressure stability check at 571 mm Hg.
Now doing a 5 minute purge of the suits.

TDRS protest! TDRS-M presser cut off for EVA. EVA start coverage cut off due to TDRS handover!

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.
