The US space agency recently confirmed that her husband was never “in danger”. Details of the latest fix sound are still on International Space Station (ISS) Totally nerve-wracking.
French astronaut Thomas Pesquet and his American colleague Shane Kimbrough continued their field work on the International Space Station after a technical problem and a break of several hours.
Kimbrough returned with his French colleague on Wednesday after returning temporarily to the space station due to a malfunction in his astronaut’s suit.
The duo had previously left the International Space Station on a multi-hour overseas mission to install a new solar panel. The task, which was originally scheduled to take six hours, is fraught with danger in many ways.
After about four and a half hours in weightlessness, the Kimbroughs experienced interruptions in sending monitoring data to the crew. A sudden increase in pressure in the suit’s cooling system was also noted. The astronaut then returned to the station’s airlock. Meanwhile, Bisquet dangles, his feet attached to a robotic arm waiting in space.
The task finally resumed after the monitoring data returned to normal and stabilized.
During their work, the astronauts were at an altitude of about 400 km above Land. It is secured in three ways, including the cable that constantly connects it to the International Space Station.
The new board is 19 meters long
The two astronauts have been out of the field since arriving at the International Space Station in late April. Pesquet and Kimbrough have already completed two field missions together. Unlike that time, this time Pesquet in command.
According to NASA expert Pooja Jesrani, your current mission is “extremely complex.” “We don’t want to make mistakes and destroy materials that cost a million dollars (830,000 euros),” Pesquet said before the field began. It is about the work of hundreds of people.
The new canopy will be installed on the port side of the International Space Station, the size of a football field. The board is 19 meters long.
The suit looks like a “tin can”
Working in a spacesuit is “extremely difficult”, said Hervé Stephenen of the European Space Agency’s training team. Holding the tool is like pressing a tennis ball hundreds of times in six hours. During the entire mission, the astronauts were strapped to their spacesuits like a ‘tin can’.
Experts include the potential hazards that spacesuits could leak, for example through the impact of micrometeorites. The cooling system can penetrate the ventilation of spacesuits, as it did with Italian Luca Parmitano in 2013.
