NASA to Livestream ISS Spacewalk


NASA will provide a live broadcast of a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk scheduled to occur later this week. Astronauts Tracy C Dyson and Matt Dominick are due to exit the International Space Station (ISS) to start the spacewalk at 8:30 pm (AEST) on Thursday, June 13, 2024.

NASA will stream the spacewalk on NASA+, NASA Television, the NASA app, YouTube, and the agency’s website.

After exiting the station’s Quest airlock, the two astronauts will complete the removal of a faulty electronics box, called a radio frequency group, from a communications antenna on the starboard truss of the space station. The pair also will collect samples for analysis to understand the ability of microorganisms to survive and reproduce on the exterior of the orbiting laboratory.

Dyson will serve as spacewalk crew member one and will wear a suit with red stripes. Dominick will serve as spacewalk crew member two and will wear an unmarked suit. US spacewalk 90 will be the fourth for Dyson and the first for Dominick.

After completing the spacewalk, NASA will announce participating crew members for US spacewalks 91 and 92, scheduled for Monday, June 24 and Tuesday, July 2, 2024.
