RUSSIAN SPACEWALK AT ISS (3 OF 3), May 12, 2023, Earth orbit, 11:55 am ET

Update, April 26:  NASA says this spacewalk will begin at 11:55 am ET on May 12 and last about 7 hours. NASA TV coverage will start at 11:30 am ET.

Update, April 24:  Russia announced this morning that this spacewalk, originally scheduled for April 25, has been postponed to early May.

Later in the day during a news conference on an upcoming US/UAE spacewalk, NASA’s Dina Contella said the April 25 spacewalk is now May 3, and this May 4 spacewalk has slipped to May 12.

Orginal 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.
