Russian cosmonauts perform ISS spacewalk
Posted: Sun, May 1, 2022, 9:53 AM ET (1353 GMT)
Two Russian cosmonauts performed a lengthy spacewalk Thursday to set up a robotic arm on the International Space Station. Oleg Artemyev and Denis Matveev started the nearly eight-hour spacewalk at 10:58 am EDT (1458 GMT), working to release thermal blankets and launch locks for the European Robotic Arm on the exterior of the Nauka module. That allowed the arm to maneuver in space for the first time. The cosmonauts also set up handrails on the robotic arm and inspected a Kurs rendezvous radar antenna on the Prichal module.
