RUSSIAN SPACEWALK AT ISS, Sept 9, 2021, Earth orbit, 11:00 am ET

(NASA TV begins 10:30 am ET)

Update, August 28:  The NASA TV schedule now shows the spacewalk beginning at 11:00 am ET (instead of 11:40), with NASA TV coverage starting at 10:30 am ET.

Update, August 24:  Two Russian spacewalks, on September 2 and 8, have been postponed by a day each.  Space Twitter explains it was to allow more launch attempts for SpaceX’s CRS-23 cargo mission, currently scheduled for launch on August 28 and docking on August 29, but we have not seen any official explanation from NASA or Roscosmos.

This is now on September 9.

Original Entry: Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov will make the second of several spacewalks needed to outfit Russia’s new Nauka module, which docked to the International Space Station (ISS) last month, on September 8, 2021.

NASA TV coverage of the spacewalk begins at 11:00 am ET. The pair are expected to exit the ISS at 11:40 am ET for a spacewalk planned for about 5 hours.
