Now in a ~10 minute video LOS, but they are working their way up to the Biorisk containers of biological samples that have been exposed to the vacuum of space, and will be retrieving one container.

Voice reacquired. The cosmonauts are inside the airlock and taking steps to prepare to close the hatch.

Video's back, but not much to see as the cosmonauts are inside Poisk at the moment.

Timer at MCC Moscow stopped at 06:23:57 elapsed time, 20:48:30 UTC, presumably at the moment of hatch closure.

Closing remarks delivered as repress gets underway.

A few history items regarding experiments removed on today's spacewalk:

 - The Biorisk-MSN experiment was installed during VKD-50, 9 September 2021, with 3 canisters to be removed and returned at various intervals - https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=54471.0
 - Impakt was installed on VKD-43, 17 August 2017 - https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=43558.0 Correction: as pointed out by Nicholas Pillet, that was the first Impakt tray. The one retrieved on this spacewalk was the second, which was installed during VKD-47, 18 November 2020.
 - Seismoprognoz was installed during VKD-37, 27 December 2013 - https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=33530.0
 - SVPI was installed during VKD-27, 21 January 2011 - https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=21500.180 - back when all our screenshots were 240p...
 - TM/TC was installed - I think - during VKD-12, 26 January 2005 - https://spaceref.com/status-report/nasa-space-station-status-report-26-january-2005/ (It seems to have originally been part of a DLR robotics experiment called ROKVISS that was removed in 2010.)
 - The SKK #4-SM cassette that was removed off the aft end of Zvezda was installed during VKD-10, all the way back on 3 August 2004! - https://twitter.com/Kosmo_Michal/status/1671836821603381248

My records indicate TM/TS was launched on Progress M-51 and installed on 2005 Jan 26. It was relocated on 2014 Jun 19 from the
MPAC/SEED carrier frame to the 'Perokhodnaya ramka' boom 17KS.600Yu1135A-0.

Also, the newly-installed communications hardware is officially the RSPI-M (radiotekhnicheskoi sistemy peredachi informatsii, "radiotechnical information transmission system," I think - but don't trust my Cyrillic romanization).

And do we know what cargo ship brought it up? Progress MS-23?

And do we know what cargo ship brought it up? Progress MS-23?

I found one wire-service article that says it came up on Progress MS-21, but I can't find any other confirmation of that claim.

Excellent quality coverage right there Yellowstone10, love your commentary (and the fact that you're attending to the important stuff during Zoom time ;) )! Thanks again for a coverage that really stands out, and allows interested yet away-from-the-screen-in-the-worst-moments people like me to follow along after the fact, getting up to speed while sparing a chuckle or two. Most appreciated.

Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

- Impakt was installed on VKD-43, 17 August 2017

The first Impakt was installed during VKD-43, but the second one (which was retrieved during VKD-59) was installed during VKD-47, on 18th November 2020.

Good catch, thank you! (Unfortunately NASA's ISS status reports transliterate it to Impact, which shows up all over the place in search results, very seldomly referring to the experiment in question.)

I'll update my post accordingly.
