2 NASA astronauts will walk in space today to install iROSA live stream in India starting at 5pm watch here

The International Space Station (ISS) has been in the news for the past few days. Along with this, a hole found in the attached Soyuz spacecraft has drawn worldwide attention. If this flaw in the Soyuz spacecraft is not corrected, then the Russian Space Agency may launch its second Soyuz spacecraft for the ISS, so that the 3 astronauts who stayed on the International Space Station can return to Earth. However, today is an important day on the Space Station. Two NASA astronauts are about to go on a spacewalk to install the new solar array there.

You will be able to watch the live broadcast of this spacewalk starting at 5 pm today. NASA will broadcast it. According to information,
Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio will be part of the spacewalk on Wednesday. Together they will install a new ISS Deployable Solar Array (iROSA).

iROSA is intended to augment the station’s existing solar panel system. 6 solar panels of this type will be installed. This is the solar matrix of the fourth number. Once the complete configuration is ready, the power supply of the orbiting laboratory on the ISS will increase by 20 to 30 percent. During Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio’s spacewalk, NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Koichi Wakata of Japan will be stationed in the orbiting laboratory and provide support from there.

This spacewalk was to take place on Monday of this week, but had to be postponed due to a coolant leak in the Russian Soyuz spacecraft attached to the International Space Station. The coolant leak was detected just before the spacewalk, when the spacesuits of the two astronauts were being prepared. The spacewalk was hastily canceled because the Canadarm2 robot was needed to get more information about the refrigerant leak. Canadarm2 will also be needed for today’s spacewalk. With these things in mind, NASA had extended the spacewalk date.

Cameras mounted on the Canadarm2 robot have detected a small hole in the Soyuz spacecraft. NASA and the Russian Space Agency are investigating the matter. It was previously said that this damage to the Soyuz spacecraft could have been caused by the collision of a small meteorite, although now it is also being investigated whether the reason for the hole is a manufacturing defect.
