NASA is set to live stream the forthcoming Roscomos spacewalk.

The forthcoming expedition by two Roscomos cosmonauts is set to make upgrades to the International Space Station. Leading the charge are Expedition 69 crewmates Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin. Specifically, the two will voyage outside of the ISS’ Poisk airlock to attach three debris shields to the Rassvet module. Additionally, the two are set to test the stability of a work platform that will be attached to the European robotic arm, which is a part of the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module.

As seasoned cosmonauts, the spacewalk will be the eighth for Prokopyev and the sixth for Petelin. Proskopyev is set to sport an Orlan spacesuit with red striped, while Petelin will have on a spacesuit with blue stripes. Previously, the two completed and six-hour and 25-minute spacewalk where they transferred a radio from the Rassvet module to the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module. The forthcoming spacewalk is set to last up to seven hours.

NASA will begin live coverage at 10:15 a.m. ET on Wednesday, August 9 on NASA Television, the NASA app and online.
