RUSSIAN SPACEWALK (2 OF 3), May 3, 2023, Earth orbit, 4:05 am ET (NASA TV)

Update, April 26:  NASA says its live coverage of this spacewalk will begin at 3:30 pm ET.  The spacewalk is set to begin at 4:05 pm ET

Update, April 24:  The spacewalk has been postponed until early May “due to the need for more detailed research into its tasks” according to Russia’s new agency TASS.

During a news conference about an upcoming U.S./UAE spacewalk later, NASA’s Dina Contella said this spacewalk is rescheduled for May 3. A subsequent Russian spacewalk that was scheduled for May 4 is now May 12.

Update, April 23: The ~6 hour spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 5:40 pm ET. NASA TV coverage begins 5:15 pm ET.

Original entry: Russia plans to resume the series of spacewalks it had planned for the end of the last year. They were suspended after the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft coolant leak on December 14, 2022 ET (December 15 UTC).

They now are planned for April 18, April 25 and May 4, 2023.  A U.S. spacewalk will take place amidst them on April 28.

The original pair of cosmonauts who were to conduct the spacewalks, Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin, have had their mission extended by six months to September so are still aboard and will do them as planned.

NASA TV usually covers all spacewalks.  Details on the time will be posted here when they are available.
