In Videos

NASA hosted a news briefing on August 24 at the agency’s Johnson Space Center to preview the next U.S. Spacewalk scheduled to take place outside the International Space Station. On September 1, NASA astronauts Kate Rubins and Jeff Williams will work on the port side of the station’s truss system to retract a thermal radiator that is part of the station’s cooling system, tighten struts on a solar array joint, and install the first of several enhanced high-definition television cameras to monitor activities outside the station. It will be their second spacewalk in less than two weeks – on August 19, Williams and Rubins installed the first of the station’s two international docking adapters (IDAs) during a five-hour and 58-minute spacewalk.
