Expedition-25 spacewalk November 15, 2010
« on: 11/10/2010 02:03 PM »
MEDIA ADVISORY: M10-159

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION SPACEWALK LIVE ON NASA TV MONDAY

HOUSTON -- Two Russian cosmonauts on the International Space Station
will conduct a spacewalk Monday, Nov. 15, to prepare the outpost for
future assembly work. The spacewalk will be broadcast live on NASA
Television beginning at 8 a.m. CST, Nov. 15.

During the six-hour spacewalk, Expedition 25 Flight Engineers Fyodor
Yurchikhin and Oleg Skripochka will work outside the Zvezda service
module. They will clean thermal insulation around the vents for the
Elektron oxygen-generation system, install a work platform, replace
material sciences experiments and move a television camera from one
Russian docking module to another.

Wearing Russian Orlan spacesuits, the duo will exit the Pirs docking
compartment airlock at approximately 8:25 a.m. The spacewalk will be
the fifth for Yurchikhin, who will wear a spacesuit marked with red
stripes, and the first for Skripochka, who will wear a suit with blue
stripes.

2. Installing of the second URM-D portable multipurpose workstation on Zvezda module;
3. Photographing of IPI-SM equipment of Impulse experiment on Zvezda module;
4. Removing of Rokviss equipment from the first URM-D portable multipurpose workstation on Zvezda module;
5. Installing a gap spanner on Pirs module;

Russian Cosmonauts to Have Pre-EVA Dress Rehearsal Today

12.11.2010

ISS-25 flight engineers Fiodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Skripochka will have pre-EVA dress rehearsal today.

The cosmonauts will put on their suits and pressurize them in order to simulate EVA pressure. With their suits on, Yurchikhin and Skripochka will ‘walk’ to the airlock to validate all the steps of the EVA procedure, including off-nominals. The cosmonauts will also operate umbilical cords, locks, tools, etc.

The EVA scheduled for Nov 15, 5.30 p.m. MSK, is to last about 5 hours 55 minutes. It will cover mounting of the universal platform for scientific payloads on the outer surface of Zvezda module, Test experiment which implies sampling of the ISS outer surface, demounting of the Robotik monoblock from Zvezda surface, photo-imaging of the IPI-SM plasma injector, installation of the soft hand-rail on the Pirs module, installation of the SKK cassette on the Poisk module, operations with Zvezda and Poisk scientific hardware.

This is to be the first space walk for Skripochka, and the second one for Yurchikin during this expedition. Yurchikhin will also mark a kind of jubilee, as this will be the 5th EVA in his orbital flight career.

Just a heads-up: NTV coverage has started. The spacewalkers are inside the Pirs airlock preparing to egress on schedule.

Oh we have a thread. Anyone willing to provide some coverage (doesn't have to be full on like a Shuttle EVA), it'd be appreciated.

They are working on depres in DC-1. Stopped to preform leak-checks

(It's 22.40 pm here in Hong Kong and I have an exam in Cantonese tomorrow so can't help out the whole EVA but can as previous posters chip in from time to time)

The EVA was scheduled to begin at 2.30 GMT so they are running a little behind schedule and the EVA is planned to last 6h 10m

Switching the Orlan suits to battery power.

Can you call the Orlan suits EMUs?

Coming up on a 4 min LOS so we will probably miss the start of the EVA since they will start opening the hatch as soon as they have switched their suits to battery power.
