NASA Television to Broadcast Two Russian Spacewalks in August

NASA Television will provide live coverage as two Russian cosmonauts venture outside the International Space Station on spacewalks Friday, Aug. 16, and Thursday, Aug. 22.

NASA TV coverage will begin at 10 a.m. EDT both days.

Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin will install equipment for the arrival of a new Russian module and begin preparations for the installation later this year of an optical telescope.

The Aug. 22 spacewalk also is scheduled to begin at about 10:40 a.m. Yurchikhin and Misurkin will remove a space laser communications system from the hull of the Zvezda service module and install a pointing platform on which a small optical telescope will be installed on a future Russian spacewalk.

The spacewalks will be the 172nd and 173rd in support of space station assembly and maintenance, the seventh and eighth of Yurchikhin’s career and the second and third for Misurkin. Yurchikhin will wear a Russian Orlan suit bearing red stripes, and Misurkin will wear a suit with blue stripes. Misurkin’s suit also will be equipped with a U.S. helmet camera to provide close up views of the work he will be performing outside the station.

I wonder why they moved the start three hours earlier. When will they have lunch if the EVA starts at 11:40 AM their time? :) Won't the cosmonauts have to sleep shift in order to do all the prep work?

Also, I'd like to get my hands on the timeline, if anybody knows where to look. Nasa.gov not working for me right now.

Do we know why they want to remove it, since it is reported to work perfectly ?

OK folk, if we can get somewhere close to the amazing coverage provided for the previous EVA, it would be greatly appreciated!

This URM-D will be used for upcoming UrtheCast installation (planned this fall).

I should be on for most of the time.

BUT, it would be helpful if someone knowledgeable explained the russian acronyms that appear all over the timeline or at least the most important ones.

Anyone?

It will be the eighth spacewalk in Yurchikhin’s career and the third for Misurkin.
