NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan and ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano from Expedition 61 at the International Space Station (ISS) are venturing outside the station on Monday, December 2 to continue repairing its cosmic particle detector.
The Expedition 61 spacewalkers will head to the far side of the station’s starboard truss structure to continue the intricate work to upgrade the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer’s (AMS) thermal control system.
The Expedition is commanded by Luca Parmitano, who became the third European and the first Italian astronaut to command the ISS. Parmitano, along with his Soyuz MS-13 colleagues Aleksandr Skvortsov and Andrew Morgan, and Christina Koch from Soyuz MS-12, transferred over from Expedition 60.
They were joined by Oleg Skripochka and Jessica Meir who arrived at the ISS onboard Soyuz MS-15.
The International Space Station is gearing up for a record pace of spacewalks this year.
