US area company NASA at this time shared a video of a pair of astronauts who have been seen strolling within the area.
The 1-minute-video exhibits astronauts Mike Hopkins leaving the area station to affix his colleague Victor Glover, already on his spacewalk.
“Caught in action! Check out @Astro_illini leaving or “egressing” the @Space_Station. Already outside the hatch, he is joining @AstroVicGlover for the duo’s second spacewalk together. – Glover’s or “Ike’s” suit has red stripes – Hopkins’ or” Hopper’s” suit has no stripes,” NASA tweeted together with the video.
The spacewalk is scheduled to final roughly six and a half hours.
The astronauts are scheduled to carry out a wide range of duties that might not be accomplished on a collection of earlier outings in area.

The astronauts are tasked to “relocate ammonia jumper cables, install a structural “stiffener” on the airlock thermal cover, and complete the connection of payload cables on the new Bartolomeo platform on the Columbus module,” NASA had stated in a launch earlier.
Other duties will embody the alternative of a wi-fi communications antenna on the Unity module.
