NASA to Preview Upcoming US Spacewalk, Provide Live Coverage

Two NASA astronauts are scheduled to venture outside the International Space Station for a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalks May 30. Experts from NASA will preview the work to be done during the spacewalk in a briefing at 2 p.m. EDT Tuesday, May 8, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Expedition 55 Flight Engineers Drew Feusteland Ricky Arnoldwill put on spacesuits for what will be the 211th spacewalk in support of station assembly, maintenance and upgrades. This spacewalk will be the ninth of Feustel’s career, and the fifth of Arnold’s. The primary objectives are to finish upgrading cooling system hardware and install new and updated communications equipment for future dockings of commercial crew spacecraft.

Participating in the briefing are:
•Kenneth Todd, NASA’s International Space Station Operations integration manager
•Anthony Vareha, NASA spacewalk flight director
•Jordan Lindsey, U.S. spacewalk 50 officer at NASA
•Keith Johnson, U.S. spacewalk 51 officer at NASA


The second spacewalk is planned for Wednesday, May 30, but the exact timing is dependent on the anticipated May 24 arrival of the Orbital ATK Cygnus cargo resupply spacecraft. The ninth Cygnus cargo mission is scheduled to launch May 20 from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

During the May 30 spacewalk, Arnold and Feustel will install a pair of brackets and high-definition cameras on the Harmony module that will helpcommercialcrewvehicles align with the international docking adapterat the forward end of Harmony. The cameras also will provide wireless data network access for experiments and facilities mounted on the ESA (European Space Agency) Columbus laboratory and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Kibo laboratory. The crew also will replace a camera on the station’s starboard truss.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 5/10/2018

Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Preparations: In preparation for next week’s US EVA 50 Pump and Flow Control Subassembly (PFCS) Relocate, the crew used computer-aided simulations to review EVA procedures via Dynamic Onboard Ubiquitous Graphics (DOUG) and the Robotics Onboard Trainer (ROBoT).  They also used Virtual Reality to review procedures associated with the Simplified Aid for EVA Rescue (SAFER).  In addition to this training, the crew completed a checkout of the SAFER units, continued with Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) Long Life Battery (LLB) charging operations, and configured various cameras used during EVA

Robotic Operations:  Last night, Robotics Ground Controllers maneuvered the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) and the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) in position to extract the failed Pump Flow Control Assembly (PFCS) also known as ‘Leaky’.  They extracted the PFCS and stowed it on the Enhanced ORU Temporary Platform (EOTP) side 3.  After initial release, the SSRMS rebounded in the X and Y directions and contacted structure; survey of the P6 interface did not indicate any damage.  The Mobile Transporter (MT) was translated from Worksite 8 to Worksite 6 to complete last night’s operations.

It is going to be a busy night tonight outside the ISS.  Ground controllers in Houston will continue to configure the MSS for the PFCS EVA. The SPDM, will install PFCS ‘Leaky’ on the EOTP, after which the SSRMS will be moved to the EVA starting position. Later in the evening Ground controllers in Tsukuba, Japan will maneuver Japanese Experiment Module Remote Manipulator System (JEMRMS) from the Stowed Position to the Small Satellite Deploy Position in preparation for Japanese Small Satellite Orbital Demonstration (JSSOD)-8 satellite deploys tomorrow morning.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 5/11/2018

Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Preparations: In preparation for next week’s US EVA 50 Pump and Flow Control Subassembly (PFCS) Relocate, the crew utilized Dynamic Onboard Ubiquitous Graphics (DOUG) Software to review crew translation paths and Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) movement during the EVA. Once complete with this simulation, the crew continued reviewing the EVA Systems Briefing Package before conducting a second EVA Procedures Conference with ground specialists.  A checkout of the Rechargeable EVA Battery Assembly (REBA), used to power the glove heaters on the Extravehicular Mobility Units (EMUs), concluded the list of today’s EVA prep activities

Mobile Servicing System (MSS) Operations: Last night, the Robotics Ground Control team powered up the MSS and maneuvered the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) to stow the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM), with the “Leaky” Pump/Flow Control Subassembly (PFCS), on the LAB Power Data Grapple Fixture (PDGF).  The SSRMS then released the SPDM and maneuvered to the start position in support for the EVA scheduled next week. MSS performance was nominal.

External Television Camera Group (ETVCG) Disassembly:  The crew disassembled the ETVCG that was retrieved from Camera Port (CP)-13 during EVA #50 on May 16, 2018 and removed the Pan and Tilt Unit (PTU) with the Television Camera Interface Converter (TVCIC). The TVCIC was then removed and stowed.  The crew will install a new TVCIC on the PTU and then reassemble the ETVCG at a later date. The newly assembled ETVCG will be installed at Camera Port CP-3 during EVA #51.

External TV Camera Group (ETVCG) Video Camera Luminaire (VCL) Bulb R&R: Today the crew replaced the primary metal halide light bulb in the ETVCG light that is scheduled to be taken outside and installed during next week’s US EVA. Following the bulb change, crew utilized a newly flown VCL test cable to perform a functional test of the assembly; both the new bulb and the backup bulb performed nominally during this checkout.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 6/04/2018

Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) 3006 Checkout and EMU Loop Scrubs:  During previous EMU 3006 loop scrub activities there have been several small peculiarities with its cooling system that the engineering teams are investigating.  During today’s nominal pre-EVA loop scrub, the crew wetted a dry Liquid Cooling Ventilation Garment (LVCG) in order to capture additional data for analysis.  After the loop scrub, water samples from each EMU were captured for conductivity testing.  Both procedures are required for long term health monitoring and maintenance of the EMUs.

Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Preparations: In preparation for US EVA 51, N2 Forward External Wireless Communications (EWC) install, the crew performed EVA tool configuration and took measurements of the External High Definition Camera (EHDC) S/N 1002 latch block.  These measurements will be compared to those collected by the crew last week during troubleshooting of EHDC S/N 1001 and will enable ground teams to determine which camera will be installed during the next EVA.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-089
NASA TV to Air US Spacewalk at International Space Station

NASA astronauts will embark on a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk Thursday, June 14, during which they will install new high-definition cameras to capture spacecraft docking with the International Space Station, including new American-made spacecraft with scheduled test flights later this year.

Live coverage of the planned spacewalk by American astronauts Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold will begin at 6:30 a.m. EDT on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Feustel, commander of the station’s Expedition 56, and flight engineer Arnold are scheduled to begin the spacewalk at 8:10 a.m.

The two spacewalkers will install brackets and high-definition cameras near an international docking adapter mated to the front end of the station’s Harmony module. The additions will provide enhanced views during the final phase of approach and docking of the SpaceX Crew Dragon and Boeing Starliner commercial crew spacecraft that will soon begin launching from American soil.

During their spacewalk, the astronauts also will swap out a camera assembly on the starboard truss of the station and close an aperture door on an external environmental imaging experiment outside the Japanese Kibo module. The imaging experiment hardware will be discarded on a future SpaceX cargo resupply mission.

The spacewalk will be the 211th in support of space station assembly and maintenance and the sixth station spacewalk this year. It also will be the ninth spacewalk in Feustel’s career and the fifth for Arnold. During the spacewalk, Arnold will wear a suit bearing red stripes while Feustel’s suit will have no stripes.

At five hours and 23 minutes into the spacewalk, Feustel will surpass NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson’s record of 60 hours and 21 minutes to move into third place for cumulative time spent during spacewalks.
