“This is the point of connection of the component in the air block itself provides energy, oxygen, cooling water and lines of communication members both the crew then proceeds to the expectation of their time, fresh oxygen pre- Breathable in the same air furrow, “said Rob Navias, NASA commentator.
But the spacewalk was allowed to go ahead because according to NASA procedures, astronauts can share a functional SCP.
Walk of the space “speed”
Space walks usually last around six-thirty, but Friday was “shortened” due to delayed start, and lasted four hours and 13 minutes, Navias said.
The pair has completed all major jobs planned for the day, except for some minor tasks, he said.
The main job was to replace the Express Carrier Avionics or ExPCA call box.
It weighs 200 pounds (91 kilograms) on Earth and transmits data and commands to experiences inside the space station, Navias said.
“He exposed thermal problems late, so he replaced,” he said.
Fischer’s enthusiasm for the beauty of the earth beneath him was evident throughout the path in space.
“Oh, they’re my favorites. Wow, they’re so blue,” added the innovator Spacewalker, who uses the nickname “2Fish”.
Whitson, who was space career in the ninth of his career, often heard Fischer’s exclamations laugh.
She holds the record for most space walked by a woman and ranks fifth for the largest number of hours spent in space by an astronaut, with 57 hours and 35 minutes.
When the space walk came to an end, Whitson said it was “incredible” to have completed the space walk number 200 of the station.
“It’s a great honor to work with all of you.”
Space walk story
The first part of the International Space Station – a Russian module – was launched in 1998, and the first space walk ever made at the station took place in December of this year.
Today, the 100 billion orbital laboratory is about the size of a football field and a symbol of global cooperation among the 15 nations that have contributed to the construction and operation.
The station revolves around the Earth at a height of about 250 miles (400 kilometers), circling the planet every 90 minutes at a speed of about 17,000 miles (28,000 kilometers) per hour.
NASA has experienced a number of problems with water leaks inside the helmets of astronauts even in 2013, when water began to fill the Italian helmet Luca Parmitano, which forces him to short circuit his space walk and To reintegrate to the urgency in the space laboratory.
Bulky white space suits for the age of NASA and the same models were used for four decades.
Despite the problems that delayed the start of the space walk today Navias said that the costumes were carried out “flawless” on leaving.
