Two Russian cosmonauts have ventured outside the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday in order to conduct a Russian spacewalk, known by its official designation of Russian EVA-30. The six hour spacewalk, the first since August last year, will include relocations of external hardware between modules, and installation of debris panels.

Spacewalk procedures:

Following suit-up activities from 12:20 to 12:40 PM GMT, Russian EVA-30 got underway at 2:31 PM GMT, when the hatch of the Docking Compartment-1 (DC-1) “Pirs” airlock was opened to the vacuum of space. The EVA crew consists of Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko, designated EV-1, and Anton Shkaplerov, designated EV-2.

Both are wearing Russian Orlan-MK spacesuits marked with blue stripes, with Kononenko wearing Orlan-MK #4, and Shkaplerov wearing Orlan-MK #6 – on what is the 162nd spacewalk in support of ISS assembly and maintenance.
