ISS US EVA 85 - IROSA 1A Channel Troubleshooting
Astronauts will troubleshoot the lower strut and attempt to reinstall the mid strut.
Afterwards, they will route power cables, shuffle APFRs and tie a flex hose rotary coupler strut back.

Scheduled for: February 2nd, 2023 8:15AM EST
Duration: ~7 hours
Primary Worksite: S4 / S6 Solar Array Truss
EV1 (Red Stripes): Mann (EMU 3009)
EV2: Wakata (EMU 3004)

NASA to Air Live Coverage of Spacewalk for Power System Upgrades
(Jan. 20, 2023) --- NASA astronaut and Expedition 68 Flight Engineer Nicole Mann is pictured in her Extravehicular Mobility Unit, or spacesuit, during her first spacewalk.

Two astronauts aboard the International Space Station will conduct a spacewalk Thursday, Feb. 2, to continue the installation of hardware for future power system upgrades. The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 8:15 a.m. EST and last about six and a half hours.

The agency will provide live coverage of the spacewalk beginning at 6:45 a.m., on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website.

On Feb. 2, NASA astronaut Nicole Mann and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata will exit the station’s Quest airlock to complete installation of a mounting platform on the 1A power channel as part of a planned solar array augmentation on the starboard side of the station’s truss.

The duo will complete the installation of the mounting platform that was started during a spacewalk on Jan. 20, relocate and install an articulating portable foot restraint from the P6 truss for future spacewalk tasks, and if time permits, complete cable routing on the 1B power channel.

The installation is part of a series of spacewalks to augment the station’s power channels with new International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs). Four iROSAs have been installed so far, and two additional arrays will be mounted to the installed platforms during future spacewalks following their arrival this year on NASA’s SpaceX 28th commercial resupply services mission.

Mann will serve as extravehicular crew member 1 and will wear a suit with red stripes. Wakata will serve as extravehicular crew member 2 and will wear an unmarked suit. The spacewalk will be the second for both Mann and Wakata.

NASA TV is Live as Astronauts Prep for Spacewalk to Continue Power System Upgrades

NASA Television coverage of today’s spacewalk with NASA astronaut Nicole Mann and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata is now underway and is also available on the NASA app and the agency’s website.

The two Expedition 68 crew members are preparing to exit the International Space Station‘s Quest airlock for a spacewalk expected to begin at about 8:15 a.m. EST and last up to seven hours.

Mann and Wakata will work to complete the construction of a mounting platform on the 1A power channel as part of a planned solar array augmentation on the starboard side of the station’s truss.

The duo will complete the installation of the mounting platform that was started during a spacewalk on Jan. 20, relocate and install an articulating portable foot restraint from the P6 truss for future spacewalk tasks, and if time permits, complete cable routing on the 1B power channel.

The installation is part of a series of spacewalks to augment the station’s power channels with new International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs). Four iROSAs have been installed so far, and two additional arrays will be mounted to the installed platforms during future spacewalks following their arrival later this year on SpaceX’s 28th commercial resupply services mission for NASA.

Mann will serve as extravehicular crew member 1 and will wear a suit with red stripes. Wakata will serve as extravehicular crew member 2 and will wear an unmarked suit. The spacewalk will be the second for both Mann and Wakata.

The first task of the day is complete as the lower strut of the solar array modification kit is now fully installed. Mann and Wakata are slightly ahead of schedule about an hour into the spacewalk.

Nearly three hours into the spacewalk, Mann and Wakata are working together to drive the collar bolts that will rigidize the mounting structure, preparing it to hold the roll-out solar array that will be installed later this year. 🔩🔧

Today, spacewalkers @AstroDuke & @Astro_Wakata finished installing a support structure that will house a solar array. As construction proved a little tricky at first, Mission Control brought out a model to help walk them through the installation.

At the end of their spacewalk, which lasted 6 hours and 41 minutes, @Astro_Wakata takes a photo of @AstroDuke.

The astronauts prepared the @Space_Station for new solar arrays that will provide the orbiting laboratory with more power.

We would like to express our gratitude to the many people who have supported us in carrying out spacewalks. We faced many challenges during the on-orbit work, but we were able to overcome them and complete the work safely thanks to the teamwork of the crew and the ground control team. The ISS appeared to shine brightly in the pitch-black space.
