0 Astronauts on a spacewalk work on solar panels. Astronauts went outside the International Space Station for their second spacewalk in less than a week to install powerful new solar panels. Thomas Pesquet of France and Shane Kimbrough of Nasa started up where they left off on Wednesday, when problems with their spacesuit and other issues prevented them from unrolling the first of a series of high-tech solar panels.
Astronauts have ventured out on their second spacewalk in less than a week to install powerful new solar panels outside the International Space Station. France’s Thomas Pesquet and Nasa’s Shane Kimbrough picked up where they left off on Wednesday, when spacesuit and other problems prevented them from unrolling the first in a series of high-tech solar panels.
Two astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will be conducting a spacewalk on Sunday, four days after they completed their last one. During the upcoming spacewalk, NASA’s Shane Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency will continue work on installing new solar array apparatus as part of ongoing upgrade work to the space station’s power system.

Mission controllers will command the Canadarm2 robotic arm to remove a new pair of solar arrays from the SpaceX Cargo Dragon resupply ship tonight. Four Expedition 65 astronauts are also training for robotics activities to support two spacewalks scheduled to begin next week. Packed inside the unpressurized segment of the Cargo Dragon, also known as its trunk, is a pair of unique solar arrays that will soon be attached to the International Space Station's Port-6 truss structure.
The Expedition 65 crew members are helping researchers today understand how living in space affects the human body. Two astronauts are also getting ready for a pair of spacewalks while the SpaceX Cargo Dragon continues being unpacked at the International Space Station. NASA Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei joined Commander Akihiko Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) for vein scans using electrodes and the Ultrasound-2 device on Tuesday.

The SpaceX Cargo Dragon resupply ship is open for business at the International Space Station following its automated docking early Saturday. Now, the Expedition 65 crew turns its attention to a pair of U.S. spacewalks to upgrade the orbiting lab's power system.
The astronauts aboard the International Space Station are ready for a big delivery of science experiments and supplies! From tardigrades studies to rodent research, NASA astronaut Megan McArthur and Japanese Aerospace Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide discuss the investigations they are excited to welcome aboard station during SpaceX’s 22nd commercial resupply mission, and show off how scientists keep important research cold.
While the space race of the 1950s and 1960s was an exciting time to be alive, humanity has never lived through a more fast-paced period of space exploration and human spaceflight. It seems almost impossible to catch up on the news without seeing a headline about a new Mars Rover, space telescope or astronomical event – and the public clamors for all of it.
New science, supplies and solar arrays are packed inside the SpaceX Cargo Dragon vehicle as it orbits toward the International Space Station. Two cosmonauts are also cleaning up following a successful spacewalk early Wednesday. Five Expedition 65 astronauts are relaxing today, but will be on duty Saturday unpacking time-sensitive science experiments from the new Cargo Dragon resupply ship.
Dressed in chinos and a pink polo emblazoned with an Expedition 65 logo, McArthur, 49, spoke with PEOPLE exclusively about her first of six months aboard the International Space Station as it zipped along some 250 miles above Australia. Incredible, and, at times, dangerous.
Two Russian cosmonauts ventured out of the International Space Station Wednesday on a spacewalk to prepare for the arrival of a new Russian module. It’s the first spacewalk for both Oleg Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov, who arrived at the space station in April, and it's expected to last about 6 1/2 hours.
SPACE STATION CREW MEMBER DISCUSSES LIFE IN SPACE WITH PEOPLE MAGAZINE Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 65 Flight Engineer Megan McArthur of NASA discussed life and research on the complex during a question and answer session June 1 with People magazine. The interview followed up on a previous article People magazine ran about McArthur’s career with questions about her flight to the station on a commercial crew vehicle and the work being conducted on the laboratory.
