Coverage of NASA’s Roscosmos-ESA spacewalk in 2022: exact schedule and events that will happen

NASA’s Roscosmos-ESA spacewalk coverage confirmed. This means the International Space Union will be offering a live stream so fans can see what’s going on during ISS activity.

This is a big problem for Russia and other countries included in NASA. Over the past few months, Roscosmos hasn’t really been on good terms with the space agency due to several issues.

The latest came after NASA slammed the Russian space agency after some cosmonauts posted their photos holding two Russian-backed state flags.

Now, as tension between Russia and NASA subsides, essential space activities can continue smoothly, including the upcoming ISS spacewalk.

NASA said it will cover the upcoming ISS spacewalk through its official NASA app, NASA TV, as well as its website.

Besides NASA, Republic World said the official ESA website will also offer its own live stream.

“NASA will provide live coverage of a spacewalk on Thursday, July 21,” the international space agency said via its official announcement post on NASA Gov.

NASA added that the live broadcast will begin exactly at 9:30 a.m. EDT, 30 minutes before the Roscosmos-ESA spacewalk schedule (10:00 a.m. EDT).

The International Space Station’s final spacewalk is expected to last about six and a half hours.

ESA Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti and Roscosmos Expedition 67 Commander Oleg Artemyev will conduct critical activities that will benefit the entire ISS.

They will use advanced Russian Orlan spacesuits outside the giant orbital laboratory.

Other Roscosmos-ESA spacewalk details

NASA explained that the main purpose of the new spacewalk is to install platforms and workstation adapter hardware near a Nauka-mounted manipulation system.

In addition to this, the designated cosmonaut and astronaut will also move the external control panel of ESA’s giant robotic arm.

They will also replace a protective window on the camera unit of the machine. These are just a few of the things that make the new spacewalk quite intriguing.

But, the most interesting thing about this ISS activity is that it will also allow the first European woman to go on a spacewalk outside the space laboratory.

Recently, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope suffered permanent damage after a micrometeoroid hit it.

On the other hand, NASA’s TESS has identified two new massive extrasolar planets.
