Scheduled for Jun 15, 2023 #NASA #Astronaut #SpacewalkNASA astronauts Steve Bowen and Warren "Woody" Hoburg are taking a spacewalk on Thursday, June 15, to add a new solar panel to the International Space Station. Bowen and Hoburg are scheduled to install a second International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Array, or IROSA, on this spacewalk, after previously installing one on June 9. The new arrays will increase the power capacity of the orbiting laboratory. The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 8:55 a.m. EDT (1255 UTC) and last about six hours. This is Bowen's tenth spacewalk and the second for Hoburg.
US EVA-88: This will be the 8th spacewalk so far this year, the 2nd for Hoburg and the 10th for Bowen; he expects to move from 5th to 3rd on the list of world's most experienced spacewalkers, passing Drew Feustel's 61-hr 48-min mark just 1 hour 26 minutes into today's EVA
