Today, NASA and astronauts, Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold will spend more than six hours outside of the international space station to make a few repairs.
Just over a month ago the pair also completed a six-hour walk to install wireless communication antennas and repair a buggy cooling system. Feustel and Arnold are back in outer space today fixing a failed cooling component and to install a camera system and communications receiver on the outside of the craft.
This marks the 210th spacewalk at the ISS since 1998, and the fourth so far this calendar year. Watch the entire walk, live from outer space on The International Space Station’s Facebook page and below.
