ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet and NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough will venture outside the International Space Station to install a new computer and disconnect a docking adapter to allow its move to a new location.
They will spend most of the spacewalk working separately, with Thomas inspecting the Station’s radiator and maintaining the Dextre multipurpose robotic hand.
Shane will be wearing a spacesuit with red stripes, while Thomas will wear a spacesuit without stripes.
