ISS SPACEWALK 47, Jan 23, 2018, Earth orbit, NASA TV coverage begins 5:30 am ET

Two International Space Station (ISS) spacewalks — or extravehicular activity (EVAs) —  are planned for January 23 and January 29, 2018.  NASA TV will cover both of them beginning at 5:30 am ET.  Each spacewalk is expected to begin at approximately 7:10 am ET.

  • January 23, EVA 47, NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei and NASA astronaut Scott Tingle, to replace one of two redundant latch end effectors (LEEs) on the robotic Candarm2 (LEE B) with a spare
  • January 29, EVA 48, NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei and JAXA astronaut Norishige Kanai, to secure LEE B to the ISS Mobile Base System as a spare

Similar work was done on LEE A last October.  This will be the 3rd and 4th EVAs for Vande Hei and the first for Tingle and Kanai.
