The duo is timelined for about six hours of experiment retrieval work, window cleaning and sample collecting on the station’s Russian segment
"Scheduled sampling of smears during spacewalk within the framework of CE [space experiment]" Test "from the surface of the" Search "module is planned to assess the extent of possible micro-damage to the station envelope as a result of the adverse factors of space flight," the press service said about tasks during the exit.
Also Kononenko and Ovchinin will clean the windows on the small research module "Search", clarified in TsNIIMash.
The astronauts will have to remove the exposure devices for the space experiments "Test" and "Endurance", which are located on the outer surface of the "Search" module. They are planned to be placed in an insulating container in order to be delivered to Earth for further study, the press service explained.
The installation of new equipment, as noted by TsNIImash, is not expected during the next exit overboard.

Live coverage of the activity will air on NASA Television and the agency’s website.Expedition 59 Commander Oleg Kononenko and Flight Engineer Alexey Ovchinin are scheduled to open the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment airlock at 11:44 a.m. EDT on May 29 for a spacewalk expected to last 6.5 hours. Live coverage of the spacewalk will begin at 11:15 a.m.Kononenko, who will be designated extravehicular crew member 1 (EV1), in the suit with blue stripes, and Ovchinin, who will be EV2, in the suit with red stripes, will install handrails on the Russian segment of the complex, retrieve science experiments from the Poisk module’s hull, and conduct maintenance work. The spacewalk will be the 217th in support of station assembly, maintenance and upgrades and the fourth outside the station this year.This will be the fifth spacewalk in Kononenko’s career and the first for Ovchinin, who will become station commander next month. Kononenko is scheduled to return to Earth June 24, with crewmates Anne McClain of NASA and David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency, wrapping up a six-and-a-half-month mission living and working in space.Keep up with the International Space Station and its research and crew at:https://www.nasa.gov/station
This EVA will be performed without previous neutral buoyancy facility training, correct?
