Spacewalk with Astronauts Nicole Mann and Koichi Wakata at the Space Station (Feb. 2, 2023)


Astronauts Nicole Mann of NASA and Koichi Wakata of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) are conducting a spacewalk on Thursday, Feb. 2, to continue preparations for the installation of new roll-out solar arrays, or iROSAs, outside the station later this summer. The new arrays will increase the orbiting laboratory’s power capacity.

The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 8:15 a.m. EST (1315 UTC) and last about six and a half hours. This is the second spacewalk for both Mann and Wakata.
