Russian Spacewalk on Schedule for Tomorrow

Tomorrow, February 16, 2012, Russian Cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Anton Shkaplerov are scheduled to perform Russian EVA 30 outside of the International Space Station.

In this video, NASA Spacewalk Officer Glenda Brown talks about the tasks the crew will be performing and goes into some detail about the differences between the US and Russian spacewalk process, including:

  • Spacewalk task and tools
  • Training philosophy
  • Spacesuits
  • Prebreathe protocols
  • Spacewalk preparations

If you have any questions for Glenda or myself on any of these topics, leave a comment and I’ll post a Q&A in the future.
