LIVE: NASA TV – Coverage of U.S. Spacewalk 81 to install an IROSA (ISS Rollout Solar Array) modification kit on the starboard 6 truss at the International Space Station (spacewalk scheduled to begin around: 13:00 UTC)

NASA astronauts Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio are conducting a spacewalk outside the International Space Station on Tuesday, Nov. 15, to assemble a mounting bracket on the starboard side of the station’s truss assembly. The spacewalk, which will prepare the future deployment of additional solar arrays for the station, is scheduled to begin around 1300 UTC and last for about seven hours.

Cassada (wearing the suit with red stripes) and Rubio (wearing the unmarked suit) are part of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-5 mission, which arrived at the station on Oct. 6, 2022. This is the first spacewalk for both astronauts.
