ISS U.S. EVA-47 - January 23, 2018
« on: 01/02/2018 06:07 PM »
The USOS crew spent the afternoon in the airlock swapping out components, and one suit, which now sits in the crew lock.  EMUs 3004 and 3006 are now mounted in the airlock.

Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) Operations: Today, the crew removed the Short Extravehicular Mobility Unit (SEMU) from the Launch Enclosure (SLE) in order to remove the SEMU Soft Stow Covers and SOP Ancillary hardware. The crew also resized EMUs 3008, 3003, and 3004 in preparation for the upcoming EVAs later this month.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-013
NASA Briefing Thursday Will Preview Upcoming US Spacewalks

American and Japanese astronauts aboard the International Space Station will embark on a pair of spacewalks Jan. 23 and 29 to service the stationís robotic arm. Experts from NASA and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) will preview this work in a briefing at 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 18, at NASAís Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Live coverage of the briefing and spacewalks will air on NASA Television and the agencyís website.

Participants in the briefing are:

    Kenneth Todd, NASAís International Space Station Operations integration manager
    Tim Braithwaite, CSA liaison office manager
    Zeb Scoville, NASA spacewalk flight director
    Sarah Korona, U.S. spacewalk 47 and 48 officer at NASA

Media wishing to participate in the briefing in person must request credentials from the Johnson newsroom no later than 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17. Media interested in participating by phone must contact the newsroom by 1:45 p.m. Jan. 18.

Expedition 54 Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei of NASA will lead both excursions, joined by Flight Engineer Scott Tingle for the spacewalk on Tuesday, Jan. 23, and by Flight Engineer Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) on Monday, Jan. 29. Live coverage will begin at 5:30 a.m., with the spacewalks beginning about 7:10 a.m. or earlier, if the crew is running ahead of schedule.

The objective of the Jan. 23 spacewalk will be to replace one of two redundant latching end effectors (LEE) on Canadarm2, the stationís robotic arm, which has experienced some degradation of its snaring cables. A spare LEE will replace the current LEE B. The Jan. 29 spacewalk will be devoted to securing the degraded LEE B on the stationís Mobile Base System rail car as a spare. Similar work was conducted on the robotic armís LEE A during a series of spacewalks last October.

These excursions, U.S. spacewalks 47 and 48, will be the third and fourth in Vande Heiís career and the first for both Tingle and Kanai.
