JAXA/ESA SPACEWALK AT ISS, Sept 12, 2021, Earth orbit, 8:30 am ET

JAXA astronaut Aki Hoshide and ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet will conduct a spacewalk at the International Space Station (ISS) on September 12, 2021 beginning at approximately 8:30 am ET.  NASA TV coverage begins 7:00 am ET.

The spacewalk originally was scheduled for August 24, with Hoshide and NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei, but Vande Hei suffered a pinched nerve in his neck and it had to be postponed.

Pesquet is replacing Vande Hei.  This is the first spacewalk with two astronauts from NASA’s international partners instead of one from NASA and one from an international partner.

NASA will have a press conference to discuss the spacewalk on Sept. 10 at 2:00 pm ET.
