StoryCast ’21: Tim Peake – Britain’s First Spacewalk

Using the timeframe of the last 21 years, Sky News returns to some of this century’s biggest news stories, using the focus of extraordinary personal stories, defined by these events.

The UK has a long history of exploration, however by 2016 only one astronaut, Helen Sharman, had travelled to space bearing the colours of the UK flag and no Briton had ever experienced the most demanding and perilous experience of spaceflight – all until one January morning in 2016.

Former RAF test pilot, husband and father Tim Peake had arrived at the International Space Station just weeks before.

When Mission Control discovered damage to an external power unit, Peake and fellow astronaut Tim Kopra, were tasked with its repair – a complex undertaking, fraught with danger, which could only be executed during night orbit at 17,000kms per hour.

Spacewalk Outside the International Space Station

Does your weekend include any home improvements? Ours does! On Sun. Sept. 12 at 8:30 a.m. EDT (12:30 UTC), watch Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide and European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet venture outside the International Space Station to perform upgrades to the orbiting lab.

The duo will spend approximately 6.5 hours in the vacuum of space preparing the space station for the installation of its third new roll-up solar array.

NASA TV coverage starts at 7 a.m. EDT (11:00 UTC). Set a reminder to watch live!

Expedition 65 – U.S. Spacewalk 77 Briefing – September 10, 2021

NASA officials hosted a briefing detailing an upcoming spacewalk focused on attaching a support bracket in preparation for future installation of the orbiting laboratory’s third new solar array. News conference participants included Dana Weigel, deputy manager, International Space Station Program; Adi Boulos, NASA spacewalk flight director; and

Sandy Moore, NASA spacewalk officer. Astronauts Akihiko Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency) will venture outside the International Space Station for a spacewalk Sunday, Sept. 12. This will be the first spacewalk, or extravehicular activity (EVA) conducted by two international partner astronauts out of the space station’s Quest airlock. Hoshide and Pesquet will install a support bracket, called a modification kit, enabling the future installation and deployment of the third of six new International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs).

U.S. Spacewalk 77 Animation – September 9, 2021

This animation discusses the September 12th spacewalk in which ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Thomas Pesquet and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Akihiko Hoshide will install a support bracket, called a modification kit, on the inward port side of the station’s backbone truss structure in a position known as P4, which is closest to the station’s pressurized living space. The kit prepares the site for future installation and deployment of the third of six new International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (iROSA) to upgrade one of the station’s eight power channels known as 4A, which provides partial power to the U.S. Laboratory, the Harmony module, and the Columbus module. The modification kit will be attached to the mast canister at the base of the original solar arrays.

The crew will also replace a device that measures the electrical charging potential of the arrays and associated surfaces in its vicinity, called a floating point measurement unit, on a separate truss.

Animation Depicts First Russian Spacewalk to Outfit the New Nauka Module

The animation depicts the work to be conducted by Expedition 65 cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov of Roscosmos during the first pair of up to eleven spacewalks that will outfit the new Russian Nauka Multipurpose Laboratory Module that was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on July 21 and docked to the International Space Station July 29. The first two spacewalks involve the connection of power, ethernet and telemetry cables between Nauka, the Zvezda Service Module and Pressurized Mating Adapter 1 that links the U.S. and Russian segments of the orbital complex.

This animation discusses the Aug. 24, 2021 spacewalk in which NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei and astronaut Akihiko Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency will install a support bracket, called a modification kit, on the inward port side of the station’s backbone truss structure in a position known as P4, which is closest to the station’s pressurized living space.

Spacewalk to Continue Installing New Solar Arrays

Join us LIVE from space tomorrow, June 25 at 6:30 a.m. EDT (10:30 UTC), to watch NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet install new, roll-up solar arrays on the International Space Station. Once their spacesuits are set to battery power around 8 a.m. EDT (12:00 UTC), they will exit the space station. This is the duo’s third excursion outside the orbital lab to continue solar array installation.

Equipped with high-definition cameras, the spacewalkers will work in the vacuum of space for ~6.5 hours and bring us along for the action! Set a reminder to watch.
