ISS EVA on 2018 March 30 (NASA) NASA astronauts successfully carried out a spacewalk Thursday despite a late start. Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold spent 6 hours and 10 minutes outside the station during the spacewalk, which started at 9:33 am EDT (1333 GMT), nearly 90 minutes late because Feustel's spacesuit failed several leak checks while getting ready. The two were able to carry out all their planned maintenance tasks outside the station, including replacing a camera and installing a wireless communications system.
