WASHINGTON, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA Television will air live coverage of a six-hour spacewalk by two Russian members of the International Space Station crew beginning at 8:30 a.m. EST Monday, Jan. 27.
Expedition 38 Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) are scheduled to venture outside the space station at 9:10 a.m. in a second attempt to install a pair of cameras on the hull of the station's Zvezda Service Module. The cameras are part of a Canadian commercial endeavor with Roscosmos designed to downlink Earth observation imagery to Internet-based subscribers. The two cosmonauts also plan to retrieve an experiment package housed on Zvezda's hull.
An initial effort to install the cameras Dec. 27 proved unsuccessful when flight controllers at the Russian Mission Control Center outside Moscow could not receive data from the cameras. The expedition crew members performed troubleshooting on several cable connectors and now believes the problem has been solved.
The spacewalk will be the sixth in Kotov's career and the third for Ryazanskiy. Kotov will be designated as extravehicular (EV) crew member 1, and Ryazanskiy will be EV2. Both spacewalkers will wear Russian Orlan spacesuits bearing blue stripes.
