The scheduled space walk of the ISS crew has begun after a long delay
The scheduled space walk of the ISS crew – the first one over the past two and a half years - has begun after a long delay, Mission Control near Moscow has said. “Valery Tokarev and William McArthur began extravehicular activity under the U.S. program at 18:32 Moscow time, 62 minutes later than it was originally expected. Tokarev had forgotten to open the pressure equalizer valve in the air lock. He had to open the hatch again, return to the station and go through the procedure once again,” a source at Mission Control said. Over the five and a half hours outside the ISS the 12th crew will install a television camera and lights on the U.S. segment and dismantle an electric potential sensor, sources in the NASA group said. This is Tokarev’s first space walk, while his commander McArthur has two walks that lasted a total of 13 hours and 16 minutes to his credit.
