The spacewalk of Russian ISS crewmembers, Oleg Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov, on June 2, 2021, will last approximately 6 hours and 50 minutes, TASS reports with reference to the press service of the ‘Roscosmos’ State Space Corporation.
It is specified that the crew will exit the hatch of the “Poisk” small research module at 8.40 am Moscow time. The planned duration of the cosmonauts’ work in open space is about 6 hours 50 minutes.
It is noted that the crew members will have to prepare the docking compartment before the arrival of the “Nauka” module and replace the replaceable panel for the fluid flow regulator of the thermal regime of the functional cargo block.
Later, in September 2021, it is planned that Novitsky and Dubrov will go into outer space twice in order to connect electrical cables between the “Nauka” and “Zvezda” modules.
