(Expedition 28) Russian EVA-29 - August 3, 2011
« on: 08/01/2011 04:25 PM »
MEDIA ADVISORY: M11-161

NASA TELEVISION TO BROADCAST SPACE STATION SPACEWALK

HOUSTON -- Two cosmonauts will conduct a six-hour spacewalk on
Wednesday, Aug. 3, to continue outfitting the Russian segment of the
International Space Station. NASA Television will broadcast the
spacewalk beginning at 9 a.m. CDT.

Expedition 28 Russian Flight Engineers Sergei Volkov and Alexander
Samokutyaev will install laser communications equipment and replace
experiments on the Zvezda service module. They also will retrieve a
rendezvous antenna, relocate a boom structure to aid future
spacewalks and deploy a small satellite equipped with an amateur
radio transmitter and a student-built experiment.

The duo will wear Russian Orlan spacesuits and will emerge from the
Pirs docking compartment airlock at about 9:30 a.m. The spacewalk
will be the third for Volkov, who performed two spacewalks as
Expedition 17 commander in 2008. This will be the first spacewalk for
Samokutyaev.

About two hours to go for this. Going to move to live events to give it some additional eyeballs and leave a mirror in the ISS section, given we normally host these in the ISS section.

Will want people to help out with this as there's big things happening in the world of Shuttle/SLS and everything inbetween today, apparently.

One of the cosmonauts are in their suit, but cant tell whom due to the feed.

Edit: Another still ingressing suit.

From http://www.arrl.org/news/arissat-1-deployment-set-for-august-3-watch-live-via-computer-or-tv

Quote
According to the schedule, the hatch to the ISS will open at 1430, and just 16 minutes later, the cosmonauts will bring ARISSat-1 out and secure the airlock chamber. At 1452, the team will remove the satellite’s solar panel covers and at 1507, they will bring ARISSat-1 to the deploy site, activate the PWR, TIMER1 and TIMER2 switches, verify that the LEDs are on and deploy the satellite.

STS-2, STS-131, ...

Hopefully the ISS feed will change to a truss camera soon.

Hatch is closed (think it is one from DC to SM)
