on Monday, three expedition 66 flight engineer companions joined the pair. They are collecting tools and reviewing the procedures for the six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk program. NASA astronaut Raja Chari worked with marshburn and Barron to collect and organize tethers, cameras and handheld tools. The three astronauts then held a procedural meeting with spacewalk experts on the ground together with NASA astronaut mark Vande hei and European Space Agency astronaut Matthias Maurer

Chari and Vande Hei will be on duty all Tuesday to assist the two astronauts during the spacewalk and help them put on and take off their spacesuits. Maurer will control the Canadarm2 manipulator to assist the spacewalker on the port-1 truss structure site. NASA television began live coverage on the agency’s website and NASA’s application at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday

two astronauts of the space station, flight engineer Pyotr Dubrov and commander Anton shkaplerov, carried out various space research and maintenance missions for one day in the Russian part of the orbital laboratory. Dubrov photographed the condition of the “science” multipurpose laboratory module after docking with the pritchar module on Friday. Shkaplerov replaced the life support hardware and began to disassemble the cargo from the newly arrived pritchar docking port
