KOROLYOV, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky began their scheduled six-hour spacewalk to install equipment outside the International Space Station (ISS), a spokesman for the Mission Control said on Monday.
“The cosmonauts opened the hatch of the Pirs docking module and exited the station,” the spokesman said. “The hatch is planned to be closed at 0:10 a.m. Moscow time on Tuesday [20:10 GMT Monday].”
The cosmonauts are completing the work, which they started during their previous eight-hour long spacewalk in late December. Kotov and Ryazansky are installing high-resolution cameras on the hull of the station’s Zvezda module for taking pictures of the Earth.
The cameras, made by the Canadian UrtheCast Company, were brought to the station by Russian space freighter Progress M-21M on November 30, 2013. Kotov and Ryazansky installed the cameras outside the Zvezda module on December 27, but had to remove them later due connectivity problems.
This is the sixth spacewalk for Kotov and the third for Ryazansky, who are part of the ISS Expedition 38.
