Pretty big paint chip liberated off the handrails there as they prepare to mount the new data transmission unit.

Getting ready to mate cables to the new data transmission unit.

All four cables have been mated to the new data transmission unit. (Also the Russian approach of just sewing on fabric tape to serve as the labels on the MLI is charmingly low-tech.)

In true Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fashion, this cosmonaut knows where his towel is. (It's attached to the crew lock bag.)

Nice view of the new antenna group on the left, Petelin (?) in the middle, and one of the other exterior experiments (whose name I can't recall) on the right.

Offline Yellowstone10

Protective shrouds removed from the new antenna unit.

Interesting to spot the old RKA logo there on Zvezda. Also, Progress MS-22 there at the back.

Offline Yellowstone10

Prokopiev has installed a cover on an Impact scientific experiment and removed it from Zvezda to be returned inside the station.

A wide-angle view showing Petelin and the new antenna unit, with what looks like the world's tiniest SASAs on it...

Offline Yellowstone10

Experiment cassette removed from the rear face of Zvezda and bagged up for retrieval inside the station.

Taking imagery of the Lira antenna boom.

I don't have audio at the moment (I might be watching this in the middle of a Zoom meeting...), but it looks like they're cleaning up and heading forward towards the airlock.

Offline Yellowstone10

Window cleaning task underway.

Offline Yellowstone10

Hah, I think Prokopiev is posing for photos taken by Fedyaev through the window they just cleaned.

Offline Yellowstone10

Pretty cool view down at Nauka and the Earth as the cosmonauts inspect their spacesuits for contamination.

Space littering.

(Two towels jettisoned.)

Prokopiev back at the Poisk airlock.

(Edit - not retrieving Biorisk quite yet as of this picture)

Good view into the airlock as they work to stow the samples they retrieved during today's spacewalk.
