ISS RS VKD-53 - April 28
« on: 04/23/2022 10:39 am »
Russian cosmonauts to spend over 6 hours during spacewalk on April 28.

During their spacewalk, the cosmonauts will continue the work to prepare the European Robotic Arm (ERA) for operation.

22 APR, 03:39

ISS, April 22. /TASS/. Russian cosmonauts working aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will embark on their second spacewalk as part of their current space mission on April 28 and spend more than six hours and a half during work outside the orbital outpost, TASS special reporter, cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev said on Friday.

The extravehicular activity for Artemyev and his teammate Denis Matveyev will begin at 17:25 Moscow time and last about 6 hours and 45 minutes. The program of the spacewalk will be specified and the time may be altered, Artemyev said.

During their spacewalk, the cosmonauts will continue the work to prepare the European Robotic Arm (ERA) for operation. Cosmonaut Sergey Korsakov who is also working aboard the International Space Station will provide his teammates support from the orbital outpost. In particular, he will operate the ERA manipulator.

Artemyev will conduct the fifth spacewalk in his career as a cosmonaut while Matveyev will carry out extravehicular activity for the second time. Before that, the cosmonauts made a spacewalk on April 18 to start preparing the ERA robotic arm for operation. Artemyev will work in Orlan-ISS Spacesuit No. 5 with red stripes while Matveyev will conduct extravehicular activity wearing Orlan-ISS Spacesuit No. 4 with blue stripes.

On November 17, 2021, Russia’s world-renowned TASS news agency and the State Space Corporation Roscosmos signed a memorandum of cooperation, under which a TASS news office was established aboard the ISS. Presently, cosmonaut Artemyev is heading the outer space-based branch. Cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin was the first TASS special reporter in space. His flight lasted 12 days.

2022, April 18 ... ISS EVA-52
Although numbered EVA-52, according to this NASA infograph this was the 60th EVA performed in Russian Orlan space suits  :o
Any idea how the counting really works ?
It looks like the April 28, 2022 spacewalk will be the " 250th spacewalk outside the International Space Station " ?!

Russian cosmonauts practice interaction before spacewalk to integrate robotic arm.

The training involved Oleg Artemyev and cosmonaut Sergey Korsakov who will operate the European Robotic Arm manipulator from the orbital outpost during the spacewalk.

25 APR, 05:54

ISS, April 25. /TASS/. Roscosmos cosmonauts trained at the weekend aboard the International Space Station (ISS) to practice interaction before a scheduled spacewalk to integrate the ERA robotic arm, TASS special correspondent, cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev reported on Monday.

The training involved Artemyev and cosmonaut Sergey Korsakov who will operate the ERA (European Robotic Arm) manipulator from the orbital outpost during the spacewalk.

Russian cosmonauts Artemyev and Denis Matveyev working aboard the International Space Station will embark on their second spacewalk as part of their current space mission on April 28 and spend more than six hours and a half during work outside the orbital outpost.

The extravehicular activity for Artemyev and his teammate Matveyev will begin at 17:25 Moscow time and last about 6 hours and 45 minutes. The program of the spacewalk will be specified and the time may be altered, Artemyev said earlier.

Artemyev will conduct the fifth spacewalk in his career as a cosmonaut while Matveyev will carry out extravehicular activity for the second time. Before that, the cosmonauts made a spacewalk on April 18 to start preparing the ERA robotic arm for operation.

6 of the Russian spacewalks (VKDs) to date have been "unscheduled/contingency" so these are given a suffix "a", "b", etc. (if two or more are done by the same Expedition crew). So far the dates of these have been:

3 Dec 2001 (a)
24 Jun 2004 (a)
30 Jun 2004 (b)
22 Feb 2007 (a)
10 Jul 2008 (a)
10 Mar 2009 (a)

Also two IVAs (referred to as внутри, vnutri, inside) on 8 June 2001 (19 minutes from the Zvezda Transfer Compartment) and on 19 June 2009 (replacing a flat cover with a conical cover on the upper docking port of SM Zvezda transfer compartment).

So not including these 8, equals 52 planned Russian VKDs. (The Cosmonaut Training Center has a page of all Russian VKDs, in Russian (Google English translation link); unscheduled is "Внеплановый", Vneplanovyi.) Roskosmos lists the 18 April 2022 VKD as the 60th Russian VKD, but the 52nd planned one.

The crew of the ISS-67 about the spacewalk on April 28. On April 28, 2022, the 61st spacewalk is planned (53rd planned spacewalk, EVA No. 53). It will again be performed by the crew of the 67th long-term expedition to the ISS - Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Artemiev and Denis Matveev.

Today, the second spacewalk of Oleg and Denis will take place, which will prepare ERA for work outside Nauka. And then I, as an operator, will control the “hand” with the help of the internal remote control, moving it to the base flight points.

10 Mar 2009 - 21a
27 Jan 2014 - 37a
11 Dec 2018 - 45a

The first Russian spacewalk from the ISS was a 19-minute IVA from the Zvezda Transfer Compartment on 8 June 2001, so it may or not be counted (it is in the list above). (The Cosmonaut Training Center has a page of all Russian VKDs, in Russian (Google English translation link); unscheduled is "Внеплановый", Vneplanovyi.) Roskosmos lists the 18 April 2022 VKD as the 60th Russian VKD, but the 52nd planned one.

Less two intravehicular activity (not EVA, but IVA) :
8 jun 2001 - 19' by Oussatchev and James Voss
10 jun 2009 - 12' by Padalka and Barratt

NASA TV Broadcasting Fifth Spacewalk of the Year Today

Mark Garcia Posted on April 28, 2022

NASA Television coverage is underway as two Russian cosmonauts prepare to venture outside the International Space Station to continue activating the new European robotic arm – a 37-foot-long manipulator system mounted to the recently arrived Nauka module.

Expedition 67 Flight Engineers Oleg Artemyev and Denis Matveev of Roscosmos will conduct the second in a series spacewalk that will be staged out of the Poisk module airlock. During the spacewalk, the duo will monitor the first commanded movements of the robotic arm from its grapple fixtures after removing thermal blankets and launch locks. The arm’s end effectors will translate one at a time to a new base points. The crew also will install more handrails on Nauka.

Coverage of the spacewalk is on NASA Television, the NASA app, and agency’s website.

Artemyev will wear a Russian Orlan spacesuit with red stripes. Matveev will wear a spacesuit with blue stripes. This will be the fifth spacewalk in Artemyev’s career, and the second for Matveev. It will be the fifth spacewalk at the station in 2022 and the 250th spacewalk for space station assembly, maintenance, and upgrades.

During the first spacewalk on April 18, the cosmonauts installed and connected a control panel for the robotic arm. They also removed protective covers from the arm and installed handrails on Nauka. The arm will be used to move spacewalkers and payloads around the Russian segment of the station.

The major steps to be performed during this EVA are explained in a bit more detail in the following slides.
First up is removal & disposal of the MLI blankets over both ERA "wrist" sections.
