NEW YORK, March 1. /TASS/. US astronauts Barry Wilmore and Terry Virts, who are part of the International Space Station (ISS) crew, will carry out their third spacewalk on Sunday in preparation for the arrival of new US commercial crew vehicles.
The spacewalk will start at 07:10 EST (1210 GMT) and will last for six hours and 45 minutes.
Wilmore and Virts will continue rigging cables and install communications antennas. This equipment will be used for docking the orbital complex with the new US commercial capsules developed by SpaceX and Boeing.
This will be the 187th spacewalk in support of the ISS assembly and maintenance. It will be the fourth for Wilmore in his career and the third for Virts.
Six people are currently working on board the station: Expedition 42 Commander Wilmore, Virts, European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, as well as Russian cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyayev, Yelena Serova and Anton Shkaplerov.
