NASA astronaut Nicole Mann and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata concluded their spacewalk at 3:35 p.m. EST after 7 hours and 21 minutes.Mann and Wakata completed work left over from a previous spacewalk for a platform on which a set of International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs) for the station’s 1B power channel will be installed later this year, as well as most of the work to install a similar mounting platform for a set of iROSAs for the 1A power channel. Due to time constraints, plans to bolt a final strut for the second platform were deferred until a future spacewalk. There is no impact to station operations.

The next SpaceX crewed mission to the space station is soon approaching. The Crew-6 crewmates are Commander Stephen Bowen and Pilot Warren “Woody” Hoburg, both from NASA, and Mission Specialists Andrey Fedyaev from Roscosmos and Sultan Alnedayi from the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre. The quartet will lift off aboard SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour at 2:07 a.m. EST on Feb. 26 and dock to the Harmony module’s space-facing port just over half-a-day later.
The next spacewalk to continue upgrading the orbiting lab’s power generation system is planned for Feb. 2. Two spacewalkers will exit the Quest airlock in their Extravehicular Mobility Units (EMUs), or spacesuits, to finish installing a modification kit on the starboard truss structure. The hardware installation job will ready the space station for its next roll-out solar array. Ahead of the upcoming spacewalk, spacesuit gloves and tethers were inspected.

The correction of the ISS orbit with the help of the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft engines, scheduled for February 1, has been postponed to the reserve date - February 3 due to ballistic reasons.
MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. The adjustment of the orbit of the International Space Station (ISS) planned for February 1 has been rescheduled for February 3 for ballistic reasons, the Russian space agency Roscosmos announced on Wednesday."The ISS orbit adjustment with the help of the Progress MS-20 resupply ship’s thrusters planned for February 1 has been rescheduled for the backup date, February 3, for ballistic reasons," Roscosmos said.
NASA astronaut Nicole Mann and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata began a spacewalk at 7:45 a.m. EST, approximately 30 minutes ahead of schedule, to complete the construction of a mounting platform on the 1A power channel that was started during a spacewalk on Jan. 20, relocate and install an articulating portable foot restraint from the P6 truss for future spacewalk tasks, and if time permits, complete cable routing on the 1B power channel....
While active pre-launch work is in full swing at Baikonur, the Progress MS-21 truck is being prepared in orbit to leave the ISSYesterday the cosmonauts loaded the equipment to be removed into the spacecraft.Undocking of Progress MS-21 and the International Space Station - February 18 at 03:54

NASA astronaut Nicole Mann and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata concluded their spacewalk at 2:26 p.m. EST after six hours and 41 minutes.Mann and Wakata completed their major objective for today, which was to complete the construction of a mounting platform on the 1A power channel that was started during a spacewalk on Jan. 20. In addition, they relocated an articulating portable foot restraint from the P6 truss for future spacewalk tasks and deployed cables for the installation of the next pair of International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs).
The ISS orbit was corrected before the Soyuz MS-22 landingThis is necessary for the descent vehicle to land in a given area.On February 3, at 13:30 Moscow time, the engines of the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft started up. According to preliminary data, after the corrective maneuver, the average height of the station's orbit increased by 2.4 kilometers and amounted to 417.8 km above the surface of our planet.
The space station is orbiting higher, 260 miles above Earth at its highest point and 257.1 miles at its lowest, after the ISS Progress 81 resupply ship fired its engines for nearly fifteen minutes early Friday morning. The new orbiting altitude places the station at the correct altitude for the arrival of the new ISS Progress 83 cargo craft on Feb. 11 and the unpiloted Soyuz MS-23 crew ship on Feb. 21.
On Friday, February 3, 2023, the orbit of the International Space Station was adjusted to ensure the landing of the unmanned Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft.The engines of the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft docked to the Zvezda Service Module of the ISS Russian Segment were switched on at 13:30 Moscow time. They worked 894.2 seconds and gave out an impulse of 1.37 m / s.According to preliminary data, after the maneuver, the average height of the station's orbit increased by 2.4 km and amounted to 417.8 km.For the entire duration of the ISS flight, 332 corrections of its orbital altitude were carried out, including 181 with the help of Progress spacecraft engines.

MOSCOW, February 7. /TASS/. The Progress MS-20 uncrewed freighter, filled with ‘junk’ and used-up equipment from the International Space Station (ISS), undocked from the Zvezda module of the Russian ISS segment on Tuesday, according to a Roscosmos broadcast.The Progress MS-20 propulsion system is expected to perform a three-minute deorbiting maneuver at 11:04 a.m. Moscow time. The spacecraft is expected to enter the atmosphere at 11:37 a.m. Moscow time, and eight minutes later, the fireproof elements will be sunk into the Pacific Ocean, 2,400 km from the New Zealand city of Wellington and 7,500 km from Santiago in Chile.During its stay on the ISS, the Progress MS-20 uncrewed freighter has prevented the station from colliding with space debris four times (on June 16, October 17, October 25 and December 21, 2022) and performed seven routine orbit corrections (on August 10, August 25, September 15, October 1 and November 30, 2022, as well as on January 18 and February 3 of this year).
Media accreditation is open for SpaceX's 27th commercial resupply mission for NASA to the International Space Station. Liftoff of the SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket is targeted for no earlier than Friday, March 10, from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
