Both members of the NASA team are currently senior astronauts. Clover has made two space missions since arriving at the space station in November. This is the third time.
Robbins previously made his first orbit in 2016 at the space station, so this is the third time.
If Sunday’s spacewalk sounded better than previous spacewalks – especially considering what happened on the weekend – that’s fine. But Kenny Todd, deputy director of the International Space Station program, told a news conference Wednesday: “This is not a real project from Monday to Friday.”
Robbins and Clover will be preparing for the upcoming Solar Kit upgrade by integrating and installing the modifier.
While the current solar station lines are still performing better, they are disgraceful. This defect is estimated to be only 15 years old and was established in December 2000 – so it is said to have exceeded the warranty period.
The new solar panels will be placed in front of six existing stations by the end of this year, which will increase production power from 160 kilowatts to 215 kilowatts, NASA said. Launch of solar panels to the space station aboard the SpaceX spacecraft will begin in June.
During space travel, Robin Crew will be member 1 in a suit with red stripes and Clover Crew member 2 in a suit without stripes.
Robins will travel with astronaut Sochi Nokuchi on March 5 to complete a number of tasks, including removing ammonia from the initial ammonia system, replacing the radio video transmitter and receiver assembly, and installing “boosters” indoors. Thermal blanket. Search. This will prevent the lid from blowing out as the atmosphere exits each time the hole is opened.
This is the flight number. Station History 235.
From Earth to outer space
Harris said, “Victor, glad to meet you. You really made history. We are so proud of you.”
Clover was the first African-American to lead a long-running space station mission around laboratory history.
During their conversation, Harris and Clover discuss who came before Clover and encouraged him.
“I think a lot about work,” Clover said. “The seven people here are part of the wonderful human space tradition. This is the time we should celebrate, we should respect it, but what excites me the most is the future of human space travel and it will be the future. This is what we want to do. . “
Harris agrees. “My mother used to tell me, ‘Kamala, you may have done many things in the first place. Make sure you are not the last.
When asked about the first two space missions and his perspective on Earth, Harris said he would follow the advice of fellow team members, “Keep your world small, keep your focus on what’s in front of you and slowly expand it. . Cosmic vision. “
When Clover first saw Earth while in space, he said he wanted to have fun watching it for hours. But he focuses on the many tasks ahead, and the place is “busy and beautiful”.
Clover talked about how fragile the Earth is from space, especially its thin atmosphere and “how important human life is on this planet”.
“I want to do everything in my power to protect it,” Clover said.
