Watch as the newly installed Roll-Out Solar Array deploys on the @Space_Stationís starboard truss structure for the first time. Astronauts Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio are more than five hours into their spacewalk.

The third and newest roll-out solar array (iROSA 3A) has been installed and unfurled on the station's Starboard truss segment and is generating power.  A fourth roll-out solar array will be installed on another spacewalk planned for Dec. 19.

Spacewalkers Complete New Solar Array Installation on Station

Expedition 68 Flight Engineers Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio of NASA concluded their spacewalk at 2:21 p.m. EST after 7 hours and 5 minutes.

Cassada and Rubio completed their major objectives for today to install an International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Array (iROSA) and disconnect a cable to ensure the 1B channel can be reactivated. They also completed an additional task to release several bolts for the upcoming iROSA installation on the 4A power channel on the port truss.

It was the 256th spacewalk in support of space station assembly, upgrades and maintenance, and was the second spacewalk for both astronauts. Cassada and Rubio are in the midst of a planned six-month science mission living and working aboard the microgravity laboratory to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies for future human and robotic exploration missions, including lunar missions through NASAís Artemis program.

The next U.S. spacewalk is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 19, to install an iROSA on the 4A power channel on the port truss. This will be the fourth iROSAs out of a total six planned for installation. The iROSAs will increase power generation capability by up to 30%, increasing the stationís total available power from 160 kilowatts to up to 215 kilowatts.

Can we fix it? Yes, we can 🔧

Astronauts Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio have successfully installed Roll-Out Solar Array on the starboard truss structure of the @Space_Station. They have also disconnected a cable allowing restoring a power channel to 75% of its operating capacity.

Who is capcom?

I though I read somewhere the capcom was Nick Hague.
A screengrab of Mission Control during the EVA indeed shows someone who looks like him. I also notice Chris Mundy as EVA officer in the row behind him, but does anyone recognize the Flight Director for this EVA, sitting in the same row as the capcom (and the other people in that row)
