Interesting note in today's ISS on-orbit status report: The ISS will be maneuvered to +YVV attitude for EVA-20.

The nominal attitude is +XVV, which means PMA-2 faces the Velocity Vector. +YVV will mean the S6 Truss will face the Velocity Vector, which will place the P6 worksite at the aft of the ISS.

I wonder whether this is due to debris concerns with the recent Russian upper stage explosion near the ISS' orbit?

No, plasma concerns I believe.  Havent encountered the Briz debris yet.  Dancing around other debris.

Looks like they're doing some ISLE.

Edit: but it isn't.

That's what I was trying to find, I thought it'd be on there. I couldn't see a link on the main NASA site for love nor money. Thank you

And just to confirm, these steps are from the ISS EVA Systems Checklist? Couldn't find 2.330 so thought I'd check.

That is correct but the version i can locate on the web (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/johnson/news/flightdatafiles/index.html) is a older version that do not have 2.330 included

They prepared an ISLE "dance" for Allison (don't remember last name) - the EVA lead! That was funny! :D Has anyone managed to capture that?
