During the walk, Hoshde and Pesket were installed with an upgrade kit or bracket to prepare the package for future solar installation.
NASA said in a statement on its satellite channel that the astronauts had completed their day-to-day operations and “one priority”, which was replacing the section of the station’s airspace.
The two astronauts worked through a port in the station’s backbone structure called P4. This is close to the place of residence of the space station.
When new solar arrays are sent to space, the upgrade will allow astronauts to install a third new solar array (rolling like a carpet) on future space routes.
Solar upgrades will help improve the station’s power channels.
NASA reports that the first shutdown of the volcanic laboratory quest was carried out by two international partners.
During the launch of the 360-degree virtual reality camera, Hoside and Pescete were filmed.
During the passage, Hoshide was a member of the Peshakte team, dressed in red stripes from place to place, and Pessett was a staff member in an unknown white suit.
It was the fourth professional corridor for Hoshide and the sixth passerby for Pesquette. It was the 244th space shuttle to help assemble, maintain and improve the station.
Improving solar power
The existing solar panels at the site are still in operation, providing power there for more than 20 years and showing signs of wear after a long period of exposure to space. The negotiations were originally designed for 15 years.
Dana Weyle, deputy director of the International Space Station program, said the erosion could be caused by the station’s progress as well as raindrops coming in and out of the station.
“The micrometry debris that affects our solar system is. Negotiations are made up of many small power cords, and over time, those power cords can be degraded if they are damaged. ”
“The exposed part of the old negotiations still creates power in parallel with the new negotiations, but those new Iris negotiations have more efficient solar cells inside than our original cells,” said Weiggle.
They have a high energy density and together they can generate more energy than we did when our first negotiation was new.
The new negotiations will have the same lifespan of 15 years. However, since the decline in initial negotiations is expected to worsen, the team will monitor the new negotiations because it could extend the real life span.
Postponement of the space passage
Some changes have been made to the Sunday Avenue since August 24. The first space trip was planned by NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hain with Hoshide.
During the space shuttle, Vande Haye continued to recover from the space shuttle.
The agency also provided up-to-date information on the presence of smoke at the space station earlier this week.
A Russian astronaut resumed as scheduled on Thursday, but firefighters woke up at around 10:00 am.
The alarm went off for a minute after the sensors were detected in the Russian Zvezda module. Smoke and the smell of burning plastic were also present in parts of the American space station.
The crew responded quickly, replacing the air filters, clearing the atmosphere, and dispersing all smoke signals. However, the source of the smoke was not known at the time.
Russian astronomers have been investigating the matter and believe they have found contact. They had a working piece of equipment in the module. After that, the smell spread.
“Everything was back to normal, and they were not repetitive,” said Weiggle. So everything is calm and great on the ship.
