Two NASA astronauts switched their spacesuits to battery power this
morning at 8:04 a.m. EDT aboard the International Space Station to begin
a spacewalk planned to last some six and a half hours. Expedition 48
Commander Jeff Williams and Flight Engineer Kate Rubins will install the
first of two international docking adapters (IDAs) that will enable
future arrivals of Boeing and SpaceX commercial crew spacecraft.

The docking adapter arrived to the space station July 20 on a SpaceX
Dragon cargo resupply spacecraft. On Wednesday, ground controllers used
the Canadarm2 robotic arm, and its attached “Dextre” Special Dexterous
Manipulator, to extract the IDA from the trunk of Dragon and position it
just 2 feet away from Pressurized Mating Adapter-2 located on the forward
end of the Harmony module.

Once the IDA is moved to a surface to surface contact with the PMA,
Williams and Rubins will begin work to hook up tethers in advance of
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Takuya Onishi sending
commands to close the hooks between the two docking ports. Once the hooks
are closed, Williams and Rubins will press ahead to mate power and data
connectors for future use of the IDA.

Williams is wearing the spacesuit with a red stripe. Rubins is wearing
the spacesuit with the white stripe. This is the fourth spacewalk in
Williams’ career and the first for Rubins. It is the 194th spacewalk for
the space station

NASA TV’s Public Channel (NTV-1) is broadcasting enhanced coverage of the
spacewalk including operational commentary, in-studio experts and
features. The Media Channel (NTV-3) is carrying a clean feed of video
from the space station with operational commentary. Full schedule details
are available at:
