MOSCOW, December 27, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian cosmonauts working aboard the International Space Station (ISS) - flight engineers Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky - will make the sixth spacewalk this year.
They are expected to work outside the station for about seven hours, the Mission Control Centre said. Both will be working in computerised Orlan-MK spacesuits with LCD displays showing which systems need to be checked before leaving the station and in which order.
This is Ryazansky’s first mission aboard the ISS and his second spacewalk. His first one took place on November 9. Kotov has made four spacewalks and this will be his fifth one.
The other ISS resident crewmembers - Mikhail Tyurin of Russia, NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins and Richard Mastracchio, and Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) - will assist Kotov and Ryazansky from inside the station.
