MOSCOW, January 10, 0:30 /ITAR-TASS/. The date of an unscheduled spacewalk by International Space Station (ISS) Commander Oleg Kotov and flight engineer Sergei Ryazansky will be determined next week, the Mission Control Centre said on Thursday, January 9.
“The spacewalk is being planned,” the Mission Control said, adding that the date was not set yet and several options were under consideration.
“The date of the spacewalk will become known early next week, on Monday. The cosmonauts are expected to complete the work they did not finish during the previous spacewalk in December of last year,” the Mission Control said.
The last scheduled spacewalk for the Russian segment of the ISS took place on December 27. It was the sixth and the longest one in 2013: the cosmonauts spent eight hours and five minutes in outer space.
