On Wednesday, the 89th NASA spacewalk will take place with the participation of two female astronauts from the USA. Jasmin Moghbeli and Loral O’Hara will leave the ISS today for hours on a recovery mission. Where to watch the broadcast on November 1?
Today, two NASA astronauts will leave the International Space Station as part of the next spacewalk organized by the American space agency. The multi-hour mission was initially scheduled to take place on October 30, but the date was postponed due to the detection of a coolant leak in the Russian Science module.
Where and when to watch the NASA walk on November 1?
The final date for NASA’s spacewalk is November 1. According to NASA, the official broadcast of the event will start at 11:30 a.m. Polish time. The walk is scheduled to start around 1:05 p.m. The entire mission beyond the ISS is scheduled to last approximately six and a half hours.
The American agency intends to broadcast the event on all standard channels. You will be able to follow the development of events on the official YouTube channel, NASA TV or NASA App.
NASA Spacewalk November 1 – Jasmin Moghbeli and Loral O’Hara service the ISS
The goal of the 89th spacewalk is to dismantle an electronic link called the Radio Frequency Group that sits on the ISS’s communications antenna. At the same time, the astronauts will service one of the twelve key elements of the Solar Alpha Rotary Joint system. This rotates the station’s solar panels towards the Sun.
While working in the vacuum of space, Jasmin Moghbeli will be recognizable by the red stripes on her space suit. Loral O’Hara will be equipped with an outfit without additional markings. It will also be the first spacewalk for both of them.
The astronauts arrived at the ISS this year and are working as part of Expedition 70. Moghbeli was transported to the ISS as part of the SpaceX Crew-7 flight and has been at the station since August 27. Loral O’Hara went into space a little later, because her service in orbit lasts from September 27, 2023.
