BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan, May 27 (Itar-Tass) - The program of ISS Expedition 36/37 includes four space walks, the first one will be performed in June, Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, the commander of the Soyuz TMA-09M spaceship, told a news conference on Monday.
“Our expedition is planned to make four space walks, and I will take part in three of them. The first one is planned for June. Its task will be to repair the thermoregulation system of the functional cargo block, and to carry out a number of scientific experiments. It is not ruled out that we will remove from the ISS’ outer surface the Durability experimental platform (which studies the impacts of space on mechanical characteristics and materials - Itar-Tass),” Yurchikhin said.
“Other two space walks will be done to lay electric cables under the new Russian cpace module MLM. And, of course, some research activities will be done on the stations’ outer surface,” he went on and added that he would not take part in the fourth space walk, regrettably.
Earlier on Monday, a state commission approved the lineup of ISS Expedition 36/37.
The crew of Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg and European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano will fly to the International Space on board the Soyuz TMA-09M spaceship, the launch of which is scheduled for 00:32, Moscow time, on May 29. The orbital mission of the ISS-36/37 crew will last more than four months.
