Two US astronauts at the International Space Station (ISS) performed on Wednesday successfully a new spacewalk for implementing some repairs, some eight days after a similar mission, announced NASA. Reid Wiseman and Barry Wilmore finished their mission at six hours and 34 minutes, right on time, said NASA.
Their task was to “replace a voltage regulator and a camera and TV equipment,” NASA said earlier in a statement.
Reid Wiseman performed a spacewalk on October 7, together with German Alexander Gerst. They installed a new electrical system on the external transport system of the Station (Mobile Servicing System, or MSS), which allows transportation of equipment and spare parts between the ISS workstations. This spacewalk mission was the 183rd at the International Space Station.
