What a beautiful scene! One astronaut on a long robotic arm. Another climbing on a 20t space station module. All with the blue marble as the backdrop.

The connection device between Wentian and Tianhe has been installed. Now working on the one between Mengtian and Tianhe. These long pieces with handrails are to establish passage for astronauts to climb along in future spacewalks.

Introduction of the inter-module bridge, which measures 2.6m long and weighs ~15kg.

Oh, it seems the one between Wentian and Tianhe is 3.2m long and the other one between Mengtian and Tianhe is 2.6m long.

Well done!
After about 5 hours and a half, #Shenzhou14 crew members concluded their #EVAs at 16:50 (Beijing Time) on Thursday, with all tasks completed! Chen Dong and Cai Xuzhe have returned to the Wentian lab module.

Space Log: Shenzhou-14 crew finishes third spacewalk

https://news.cgtn.com/news/2022-11-17/China-Space-Station-Shenzhou-14-crew-begins-third-spacewalk-1f1K3LRtwxW/index.html

China's Shenzhou-14 astronauts, or taikonauts, completed their third round of extravehicular activities (EVAs) on Thursday, according to the China Manned Space Agency.

It was the first round of EVAs for the crew after the assembly of the station's basic T-shape configuration.

Taikonauts Chen Dong and Cai Xuzhe exited the cabin, and Liu Yang stayed inside the cabin for support. The EVAs lasted around 5.5 hours.

During the EVAs, the two taikonauts outside the cabin worked together and installed a connection "bridge" between the three modules that could assist taikonauts with crawling outside the module and better stabilize the station's T-shaped structure.

Cai, who only had his first space walk in September, tried the first cross-module walk using this bridge.

The taikonauts also lifted a panoramic camera outside the Wentian lab module and added a handle on the small robotic arm.

This is the seventh round of EVAs at China's space station.

The Shenzhou-14 taikonauts successfully completed their first two rounds of EVAs in September, both from the airlock cabin of the Wentian lab module. The first EVAs lasted about seven hours, and the second lasted about five hours.

The three Shenzhou-14 crew members were sent into space in June on a record-breaking six-month mission.

As planned, the Shenzhou-14 crew will welcome the arrival of the Shenzhou-15 manned spacecraft at the space station later this month. The Shenzhou-15 crew members will join the Shenzhou-14 taikonauts for the space station's first-ever crew handover.

EVA Started at 11:16 Beijing time (UTC+8)
End at 16:50  Beijing time

Wait so CSS has TWO RMSs? I'd missed Wengtian carried one. But they can combine to create a *15-m-long* arm?!

That's... excellent. Probably going to need it for the SAWs relocation from Tianhe to the extremities of Mengtian and Wengtian?

During todayís EVAs, Shenzhou14 crew members sent out a birthday greeting. Who is so lucky to be named?
He is #WangYongzhi, the first chief designer of China's manned spaceflight project.
In 14 years, he has led many projects including 4 unmanned test flights .

[Must-watch] Thanks to the 15m long robotic arm by connecting the 10m Tianhe arm & 5m Wentian arm, we're able to have a close look of the 3-module assembly of China Space Station with two spacecrafts (Shenzhou-14 and Tianzhou-5), from astronaut CHEN Dong's perspective.

In this clip, it feels like behind the wheels of a semi with wide-open field of view, instead of a small car. And, earth/ocean is beautiful as usual
