U.S. SPACEWALK AT THE ISS (1 OF 3), June 13, 2024, Earth Orbit, 8:00 am ET

Update, June 13, 8:10 am ET: The spacewalk was scrubbed before it was to begin. The astronauts were in their suits, in the airlock, but now have doffed their suits. NASA posted this statement on the ISS blog, but the reason for the cancellation was not immediately announced.

Original Entry: NASA astronauts Tracy Dyson and Matt Dominick will conduct the first of a set of three spacewalks at the International Space Station on June 13, 2024 starting at 8:00 am ET.

NASA coverage of the approximately 6.5 hour spacewalk begins at 6:30 am ET.

According to a NASA press release, the two will “complete the removal of a faulty electronics box, called a radio frequency group, from a communications antenna on the starboard truss of the space station. The pair also will collect samples for analysis to understand the ability of microorganisms to survive and reproduce on the exterior of the orbiting laboratory.”

The second in the set is scheduled for June 24 and the third is July 2.
