I have learned that during Expedition 34, two US EVAs will be conducted - EVA-18 by Chris Hadfield & Tom Marshburn, and EVA-19 by Chris Hadfield & Kevin Ford. Specific dates are unknown.

The next reboosts of ISS orbit are planned on December 1st and 7th. Possibly there will be only one reboost - on December 1st.

There will be the test reboost on December 1st. During it Zvezda's engines will cutoff with the using of data from U.S. accelerometers, not by command of onboard timer, as always. It will allow in future to perform more precise reboosts.

I have learned that US EVA-18 is currently planned for Expedition 33 (September - November 2012), but could move to Expedition 35 (March - May 2013).

You have listed the SpaceX-Dragon launch as being pushed back one day to Feb 8, but the berthing has been left on Feb 10.  Three days didn't seem nearly long enough, but two days doesn't seem physically possible.  Doesn't SpaceX have to demonstrate an abort at ~2km separation (minus R-bar?) before they are allowed close enough to grapple?

Are you simply waiting for an official or just more reliable indication that the other dates have also been moved back?
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

From the Heavens-Above plot it looks like that boost was done on Dec 1, and another about ten days later.  How well did the new control scheme work?

Very well. :)

From ISS On-Orbit Status Report for 10/12/2011.

ISS Reboost Update:
A one-burn reboost of the ISS was performed yesterday as planned at 7:50 PM GMT using the two KD engines of the SMís ODU (Integrated Propulsion System) for a burn duration of 1m 22s, achieving a Delta-V of 1.33 m/s (planned: 1.3 m/s), increasing mean altitude by 2.36 km (planned: 2.3 km). After the burn, ISS was at 393.1 km mean altitude, with 413.4 km apogee height and 372.8 perigee height. The purpose of the reboost, the 2nd of 2, was to set up proper phasing for the Soyuz TMA-03M/29S launch & rendezvous. This was also the 2nd time the US SIGI (Space Integrated GPS/Inertial Navigation System) accelerometers were used for closed loop guidance of the reboost, and all worked well. The reboost was within 3% of the target burn, i.e., an excellent performance. After the reboost, SM thrusters were again connected to the FGB propellant tanks to handle attitude control and desaturation firings.

I am waiting for a berthing date in UTC.

That's a lot of EVAs! What will be their objectives? Are they connected to the delivery of MLM?

EDIT
Oh, sorry, missed the other thread you created.

EVA-33 in June 2013 will be devoted to a disconnection of cables between Pirs and Zvezda modules and to a transferring of EVA ladder from Pirs to Poisk in preparation to Pirs undocking.

I do not know tasks of next EVAs, but they will be devoted to integration of MLM module to the Russian segment and to transferring of equipment from Rassvet to MLM (scientific airlock, radiator, work platform).

I have learned that US EVA-19 will now be performed this summer, possibly to R&R some failed ORUs (SASA + MBSU-1). I'll try and find out more.

According to http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/MM_NTV_Breaking.html, the next Russian EVA is planned on February 16th (beginning - 14:15 UTC).

Thanks. Maybe US EVA-18? Joseph Acaba said during preflight press-conference in Houston that the crew has one possible US EVA but it depends on traffic.

I have learned that US EVA-19 will now be performed this summer, possibly to R&R some failed ORUs (SASA + MBSU-1). I'll try and find out more

Thanks. Maybe US EVA-18? Joseph Acaba said during preflight press-conference in Houston that the crew has one possible US EVA but it depends on traffic.

I have asked people in the know, and I have learned that EVA-18 will be performed this summer, with EVA-19 being performed early next year.

The summer months are generally May through September, which means EVA-18 will be performed during Expedition 32. The US crewmembers on Expedition 32 will be Joe Acaba and Sunita Williams, although I have seen photos of Williams and Akihiko Hoshide training for EVAs together, so maybe Williams and Hoshide will perform the EVA since they will have more time to train together prior to launching (Acaba is going up in late March, Williams and Hoshide are going up in late May).

For EVA-19, early 2013 could mean anytime between January and May, which puts EVA-19 during Expedition 34 or 35, meaning the EVA crew could be any combination of Kevin Ford, Tom Marshburn, or Chris Hadfield (I know for a fact that all three crewmembers have been training for EVAs together).

I do know that an MBSU-1 R&R will be part of EVA-18 tasks, and it is also likely that some other outstanding USOS EVA tasks will be performed, which I have listed below.

• FGB PDGF grounding wire reconfig
• FGB PDGF 1553 cable install
• SSRMS CLPA elbow camera R&R
• CP7 ETVCG R&R
• CETA light S1-1 R&R
• S1 FHRC P-clamps removal
• Port CETA cart reconfig

On page 17 of the Jan 16 issue of Aviation Week, an article by Jen Dimascio AvWeek "Congressional Editor" says
"..and final approval for Dragon to approach the station will not come until at least three dys after launch." 

This conflicts with what was posted here in the schedule, which had the berthing two days after launch.

Is this new info, unreleased info, wrong info, just a guess?



What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

Today there is a report about training of JAXA astronauts in Orlan suits. http://www.gctc.ru/main.php?id=1263
Is this an indication that one of them could take part in an Russian EVA?
