THIS, THE FIRST SPACEWALK RD TO

CONDUCTED BY TWO WOMEN.

>> THE EMERGENCY ENTRANCE IS

CLOSED.

CHRISTINA AND JESSICA, YOU'RE

GOING TO DO GREAT.

WE'RE GOING TO BE WAITING FO

YOU WHEN YOU COME HOME.

I'M GOING TO HAND YOU OVER TO

STEPHANIE NOW.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I'M GOING TO BE WORKING WITH YOU

THIS MORNING, AND I'M GOING TO

BE GETTING THAT E.V.A. HATCH

OPEN FOR YOU, AND I'M GOING TO

NG ON GETTING IT OPENED

AND STOWED.

>> THANK YOU, DREW.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>> STAGGER SWITCH THROWS AND

EXPECT A WARNING TONE.

>> HEARING THERE OUR FIRST WORD

TODAY FROM STEPHANIE WILSON AT

THE CAPCOM CONSOLE, CONTINUING

TO HELP GUIDE THE SPACEWALKERS

OVER THESE FINALS STEPS BEFORE

THEY BEGIN THE SPACEWALK.

TRACEY, HOW IMPORTANT IS THIS

HELP FROM THE GROUND?

THE GUIDING THROUGH, IT SEEMS

LIKE A LOT TO REMEMBER ONOUR

OWN.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> TAKE POWER, E.V.-1, E.V.-2,

TWO SWITCHES TO OFF, O-F-F.

>> IT HELPS TO HAVE SOMEONE LIKE

STEPHANIE.

>> CHECK POWER FOR L.E.D.s ARE

OFF.

>> POWER FOR L.E.D.s ARE OFF.

>> ON YOUR S.C.U.s, DISCONNECT

FROM YOUR D.C.M.s AND STORE YOUR

S.C.U.s IN THE POUCH.

>> SO NOT ONLY DOES STEPHANIE --

>> AND WITH THE BATTERY POWER

NOW ON, THE SPACEWALK IS STILL

ON.

WE SEE THAT AT8, AND THAT

GETS US STARTED ON TODAY'S

HISTORIC SPACEWALK.

YOU ALSO HEARD ANDREW MORGAN

WISHING THE CREW LUCK.

>> JESSICA, CHECK DEPRESS MAIN

ISOPUMP CLOSED.

>> ISOPUMP MANAGEMENT VALVE IS

CLOSED.

>> I'LL SAY ONE THING ABOUT

STEPHANIE WILSON, SHE'S A

FAMILIAR VOICE TO THEM, SO BEING

OUTSIDE, IT'S VERY COMFORTING T

TALKING TO ON THE INSIDE.

THEY FEEL PROBABLY AT THIS POINT

STEPHANIE'S OUT THERE WITH THEM.

>> SHE'S BEEN DOING A LOT OF THE

SPACEWALK -- SHE'S GOING TO DO

THE ONES THAT ARE PLANNED, SO

SHE'S ALREADY DONE TWO OF THEM.

>> CORRECT.

>> AND SHE'S NO STRANGER TO

BEING IN SPACE, SO SHE HAS -- I

THINK THAT EXPERIENCE IS THAT

STEPHANIE HAS IS PROJECTED TO

HER VOICE AND ALSO ADDS TO THE

CONFIDENCE AND COMFORT THAT THE

SPACEWALKERS ARE GOINGO HAVE

AS THEY GO ON WITH THEIR TASKS.

.

>> COPY.

TAKE TEMPERATURE CONTROL VALVE

AS DESIRED.

>> ONCE AGAIN, THE SPACEWALK

TODAY DID OFFICIALLY BEGIN AT

6:38 CENTRAL TIME.

HATCH IS OPEN ON THE QUEST AIR

LOCK.

YOU CAN SEE THE COVER POPPED UP

THERE, AND THERE ARE JUST

COUPLE OF STEPS LEFT BEFORE WE

EXPECT TO SEE THE SPACEWALKERS

COMING OUT OF THE HATCH.

>> COPY, 4.5 AND 4.4.

VISORS AS REQUIRED FOR THREE.

>> AND YOU MAY TAKE YOURORS

AS REQUIRED FOY.

>> COPY.

AND THAT'S COMPLETE.

>> COPY.

WE HAVE ALL OF THE SUIT

PARAMETER DATA HERE ON THE

GROUND.

WE HAVE TAKEN CARE OF THE AIR

LOCK B.R.I.B. STEP, SO WE SHOW A

HATCH DEPRESS COMPLETE.

CHRISTINA, YOU MAY EGRESS THE

AIR LOCK.

>> COPY.

INWARD.

FROM STEPHANIE WILSON FOR AD

CHRISTINA KOCH TO BEGIN HEADING

OUT OF THE AIR LOCK.

AGAIN, THE SPACEWALK HAS

OFFICIALLY BEGUN, 6:38 OFFICIAL

START TIME, AND COMING DOWN FROM

THE SPACE STATION, WE SHOULD SEE

THE SPACEWALKERS CONTINUING TO

MAKE THEIR WAY OUTSIDE.

ONCE AGAIN, THIS HISTORIC

MOMENT, FIRST TIME THE TWO WOMEN

HAVE DONE A SPACEWALK TOGETHER.

TRACEY, AS A FEMALE SPACEWALKER,

DOES THAT SEEM LIKE A MILESTONE

MARKING AND CELEBRATING FOR YOU?

>> I THINK THE MOLE STONE IS

HOPEFULLY THERE WILL NOW BE

CONSIDERED -- THIS WILL NOW BE

CONSIDERED NORMAL.

IT'S SIGNIFICANT, AND NOT TO

OVERSHADOW THE FACT THAT WOMEN

HAVE BEEN DOING SPACEWALKS FOR

EVERY DAY, AND WE HOPE THAT THIS

IS THE NEW NORMAL, AND THIS IS

LEADING UP TO THAT.

>> CHRISTINA KOCH THERE, THE

FIRST TO COME OUT OF THE AIR

LOCK.

>> COPY.

FOR THE SAFETY TETHER CONFIG,

ATTACH TETHER TO THE EXTERNAL

SAFETY D-RING.

>> YOU'LL BE ABLE TO TELL THE

TWO SPACEWALKERS APART THE

RED STRIPE ON CHRISTINA KOCH'S

SPACE.

JESSICA MEIR IS ALL WHITE, AND

THEY'RE MAKING SURE THE TETHERS

ARE A SAFEND APPROPRIATE.

ONCE SHE'S DONE THAT, JESSICA

MEIR WILL BE COMING OUT OF THE

HATCH.

AND TRACEY, I THINK YOU WERE

SAYING THIS THIS COULD BE

CONSIDERED KIND OF A NORMAL

THING GOING FORWARD.

>> YEAH.

AS MUCH AS IT'S WORTH

CELEBRATING THE FIRST SPACEWALK

WITH AN ALL-FEMALETEAM IINK

MANY OF US ARE JUST LOOKING

FORWARD TO IT BEING NORMAL.

I THINK IF IT SIGNIFIES

ANYTHING, IT IS TO HONOR THE

WOMEN WHO CAME BEFORE US WHO

WERE SKILLED AND QUALIFIES AND

DIDN'T GET -- QUALIFIED AND

DIDN'T GET THE SAME

OPPORTUNITIES THAT HAVE TODAY

BECAUSE IT IS SO NORMAL.

>> COPY, CHRISTINA.

CHECK GATE CLOSED AND REEL

UNLOCKED.

>> THAT IS A GREAT SENTIMENT,

AND SPEAKING OF PEOPLE PAVING

THE WAY, I'M SURE YOU SEE A LOT

OF YOUNG GIRLS IN YOUR ROLE.

DO YOU THINK THEY'LL FOLLOW IN

YOUR FOOT STEP IN.

>> YOU KNOW, THERE ARE A LOT OF

GIRLS WITH DREAMS, AND THEY CAN

ENVISION THEMSELVES IN THESE

ROLES AND PLACES, AND I THINK IT

WILL LAST THROUGH THEIR

FORMATIVE YEARS.

IF BEING AN ASTRONAUT OR

SPACEWALKER IS IMPORTANT TO

THEM, IT'LL BE MEANINGFUL.

>> HOPEFULLY, GIRLS WATCHING

WILL BE INSPIRED BY THIS

SPACEWALK, BY ALL OF YOUR WORK.

BUT IS THAT -- IS THERE ANY --

Y ADVICE THAT YOU WOULD GIVE

SOMEBODY IN THAT POSITION WHO IS

HOPING TO FOLLOW IN YOUR FOOT

STEPS?

>> I THINK THE BEST ADVICE I CAN

GIVE TO ANYONE, ESPECIALLY YOUNG

LADIES, IS TO KNOW YOURSELF AND

THE THINGS THAT YOU REALLY ENJOY

DOING, AND TO KEEP DOING THO

THINGS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT'S

GOING TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN

YOU.

>> YEAH.

AND THAT'S WHAT CHRISTINA KOCH

DID AND JESSICA MEIR DID.

>> I THINK THAT'S THE MAIN

>> WELL, AS WE'RE GETTING

STARTED ON OUR SPACEWALK,

ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO LOOK

FOR, OR THIS WOULD BE AN

INTERESTING PART?

>> WELL, AS AN ASTRONAUT AND

SPACEWALKER MYSELF, THERE'S SO

MUCH THAT THEY'RE DOING TODAY

THAT IS IROM A

CAL STANDPOINT.

THE VERY TASK THAT THEY'RE

PERFORMING AT THE MOMENT IS NOT

ONE THAT IS USUALLY TYPICAL.

WE USUALLY GO OUT WITH OUR

SAFETY TETHERS, SO WHAT

CHRISTINA IS DOING TO ENSURE

THEIR SAFETY IS ALREADY

EXPENDING A LOT OF ENERGY WITH

THEIR FINGERS IN A PRESSURIZED

SUIT.

SO IF YOU CAN'T SEE THE DETAILS

OF WHAT SHE'S DOING, IT IS VERY

INTRICATE AND VERY IMPORTANT,

AND IT'S GOOD THAT SHE'S TAKING

HER TIME WITH THAT TASK.

BUT OF THE, I THINK,

EXCITING MOMENTS, JUST TO WATCH,

IF NOT TO EXPERIENCE, ESPECIALLY

WITH JESSICA, THIS BEING HER

FIRST ONE, IS WHEN THEY'RE OUT

ON THE PALLET, THE EXTERNA

PALLET, THAT PALLET IS

POSITIONED ON THE SPACE STATION

SUCH THAT WHEN THEY'RE ON IT,

THEY'RE GOING TO GET THE FULL

VIEW OF THE EARTH UNDERNEATH

THEM AT ASPEED THAT'S

NOTICEABLE.

IT'LL BE EXHILARATING FOR THEM,

AND I THINK IT'LL BE GREAT IF WE

CAN GET BODIES ON THE SPACE

STATION DOING THEIR GREAT WORK.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

WE DON'T HAVE HELMET CAMS YET,

BUT WE HOPE TO AS THE SPACEWALK

PROGRESSES.

AND WE SEE THE FIRST SHIFT OF

JESSICA EXITING.

BOTH SPACEWALKER, CHRISTINA KOCH

AND JESSICA MEIR OUT FOR THE

SPACEWALK.

JESSICA MEIR WILL BE CARRYING

BASICALLY A TOOL BAG OUT OF THE

SHE'S OUT, THEY CAN GET STARTED

ON THE WORK TODAY, WHICH IS A

SWAP OUT OF THE BATTERY

DISCHARGE UNIT THAT WE HAD A

PROBLEM WITH FOLLOWING A

SPACEWALK LAST FRIDAY.

>> CHRISTINA, I'M GOING TO DO A

LITTLE TRANSITION HERE.

>> COPY THAT.

>> HOUN IS BACK WITH YOU,

AND WE'RE COPYING, AND IT'S YOUR

CALL.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO PLACE THE

MEDIUM OR U-BAG FIRST OR TRACE

THE ADAPTATION, IT IS UP TO YOU.

>> OKAY.

COPY.

>> TRANSLATION, IT'S KIND OF A

BIG FANCY WAY OF GETTING USED TO

MOVE AROUND IN SPACE.

>> YEAH, A BIG, FANCY WAY.

THIS EXPERIENCE THEY HAVE IN THE

VACUUM OF SPACE, MANEUVERING IN

THE SUIT IS NOT EASILY MOCKED UP

HERE ON EARTH, AND SO THIS IS

THE FIRST TIME THEY'LL

EXPERIENCE THAT FRICTIONLESS

MOTION IN THEIR SUIT, BUT

THEY'RE MASSIVE, AND SO THEY

NEED TO PUT IN SOME EFFORT TO

STOP THEMSELVES.

THEM TO UNDERST WHAT FORCES FOR

THEY'RE GOING TO NEED TO DO, THE

MOVING FORWARD AND THE STOPPING.

WE HAVE A PRECISION AIR-BEARING

FLOOR THAT WE USED TO USE TO

REPLICATE THAT.

BUT NOW ADAYS, WE HAVE A BUNGEE

SYSTEM AND A FACILITY THAT

SUSPENDS US, AND WE'RE ABLE TO

MORE ACCURATELY RESPOND TO THE

MOTION AND MASS OF A UNIT, SO WE

DO HAVE SOME WAYS OF PRACTICING

IT HERE.

>> I CAN SEE YOUR TETHER, AND

YOU ARE IN A GOOD CONFIG.

>> COPY.

THANK YOU.

>> COPY, JESSICA.

WE COPY THE BUDDY CHECKS ON

E.V.-1, AND WOULD YOU BOTH

PLEASE GIVE US A BASELINE HALF

CHECK.

>> FOR E.V.-1, MY HALF IS DRY.

>> FOR E.V.-2, MY HALF IS DRY.

>> COPY, DRY HALF.

>> WE'LL GET THE THERMAL COVER

WORK.

>> SO HALF CHECKS ARE SOMETHING

THAT WE'RE GOING BE HEARING

KIND OF ON AND OFF THROUGHOUT

THE SPACEWALK.

THAT'S A PERIODIC CHECK THAT

THEY DO PERIODICALLY TO MAKE

SURE THERE'S NO WATER IN THEIR

HELMET.

>> YEAH.

LUCA IS GOING TO DO THE ARM WORK

FOR THEM.

WE HAD A WALK WITH HIM WHERE

THERE WAS WATER IN THE HELMET.

WE HOPE NOT TO HAVE THAT AGAIN.

IT'S A MEANS TO PROTECT THE CREW

IF THEY'RE IN THAT SITUATION.

>> I THINK H.A.P. IS HELMET

ABSORPTION PACK, AND THEY'LL BE

DOING CHECKS THROUGHOUT THE DAY,

AND THE BAG, WE CAN SEE IT.

>> -- IF YOU WANTED TO DO IT

THAT WAY, BUT I CAN KEEP AN EYE

ON IT, AS WELL.

>> I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF WE

ACTUALLY HEAR A COMMENT, BUT I

CAN BETTER THE TWO ARE THINKING

OR AT LEAST JESSICA, BEING HER

RST TIME OUTUST HOW SIMILAR

THE ENVIRONMENT LOOKS TO THE

ENVIRONMENT WE TRAIN IN.

THERE'S SO MANY SIMILARITIES

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THAT BIG,

PLUMP BLUE PLANET.

>> YEAH.

I THINK EVERY HANDRAIL HAS A

NUMBER.

THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHERE T

GOING AHEAD OF TIME AND WHICH

PATH THEY'LL TAKE.

>> EXACTLY, YEAH.

STEPHANIE WILL BE CALLING OUT

SPECIFIC HANDRAIL NUMBERS, BUT

THEY'VE DONE ENOUGH PREPARATION

THAT THEY KNOW THE GENERAL

DIRECTION THAT THEY'RE G, Y

STEPHANIE WILL GIVE THEY ARE

CONFIDENCE WHERE THEY'RE GOING.

THEY HAVE LIGHTS ON THEIR HELMET

AND EXTERNAL LIGHTS TO HELP

LIGHT THEIR PATH, BUT WHEN THE

SUN GOES DOWN, IT'S A MUCH

DIFFERENT VIEW.

SO HAVING HANDRAIL NUMBERS

CALLED OUT CAN HELP KEEP YOU IN

THE STRAIGHT LINE PATH YOU'RE

INTENDING.

>> IT LOOKS LIKE WE'LL BE

HEADING INTO THE DARK PORTION O

THIS WALK IN MINUTE -- OR IN

THE NEXT FEW MINUTES, SO WE'LL

BE GETTING A LOOK AT THAT SOON.

YOU MENTIONED YOUR FIRST

SPACEWALK WASN'T A PLANNED ONE.

SO HOW DO YOU GET READY FOR THAT

WHEN YOU CAN'T TRAIN IT ON

THE GROUND AHEAD OF TIME?

>> WELL FIRST, WE HAVE A CREW ON

THE GROUND SO DEDICATED TO

PROVIDING AS MUCH INFORMATION AS

WE CAN, AND THEN GETTING A

MATTER OF TIME TO ABSORBING IT,

AND THEN PRIORITIZING FOR

YOURSELF WHAT IT'S GOI TO

MEAN.

WE HAVE VIRTUAL REALITY THAT WE

CAN USE ON ORBIT TO IMMERSE

OURSS IN THE ENVIRONMENT.

BUT IT'S RELYING ON YOUR

TRAINING TO KICK IN WHEN YOU'RE

OUTSIDE, AND THEN, OF COURSE,

THE GROUND GUIDING YOU.

>> COPY, JESSICA.

FOR CHRISTINA, TRANSLATE TO THE

A.P.F.R. ON THE STAR BOARD SEAT,

AND YOU'LL BEGIN SETUP.

AND FOR JESSICA, TRANSLATE TO

P-4.

YOU'LL ATTEMPT TO STORE THE BAG

ON THE MEDIUM HANDRAIL THERE.

AND FOR THIS ONE, CHRISTINA

LEADS THE TRANSLATION.

>> WE COPY, AND WE WOULD LIKE

CHRISTINA TO LEAD.

>> COPY.

>> SO THEY FINISHED THAT FIRST

INITIAL WORK THAT THEY HAVE TO

DO GETTING USED TO BEING IN

SPACE AND GETTING THEIR TETHER

SETUP, SO NOW, THEY'RE MOVING ON

THEIR WAY AND GETTING SETUP FOR

THE FIRST TASK.

>> YEAH.

E'S SO MUCH WORK THAT

THEY'VE DONE UP TO THIS POINT

IT'S UNFAIR ALMOST TO SAY THAT

THEY'RE GETTING STARTED, BUT

YEAH, THEIR FIRST TASK IS ABOUT

TO BEGIN.

>> CHRISTINA WILL BE MOVING TO

GET

.

CHRISTINA, YOU WILL END UP

YOU'RE AT THE P-4 WORKING THE CE

S.S. ARM SETUP, AND JESSICA, YOU

CAN EXPECT TO HAVE TO CROSSOVER

CHRISTINA'S TETHER AT TH C-TECH

ARM.

>> OKAY.

COPY.

CROSSING OVER CHRISTINA'S

TETHER, AS WELL.

>> THIS AGAIN IS A VIEW FROM

JESSICA MEIR'S HELMET CAMERA.

SHE'S ABOUT TO BEGIN SETTING UP

THE WORK SITE AT THE P-6 TRUSS

SEGMENT.

THAT'S THE FAR END OF THE PORT

TRUSS ON THE SPACE STATION, ONE

OF THE FURTHEST WORK SITES THAT

WE SEND SPACEWALKERS TO.

ONCE SHE'S THERE, SHE WILL BE

PICKING UP SOME HANDLES THAT

PREINSTALLED ON THE

NICKEL-HYDROGEN BATTERIES THAT

WOULD HAVE BEEN REPLACED ON A

SPACEWALK ON WEDNESDAY.

THAT PREEMPTED IS WHEN WE HAD A

PROBLEM WITH A BATTERY DISCHARGE

IN THE SECONDERIES WHICH TOOK

PLACE LAST

.

>> AND JESSICA, WIDTH FIVE IS IN

THE C-TECH CART THAT IS ON THE

PORT SIDE.

>> OKAY.

COPY THAT.

I'M GOOD TO KNOW.

>> I'M RIGHT BENEATH YOUR FEET,

SO DON'T MOVE DOWN.

>> COPY.

>> LITTLE BIT OF A VIEW THERE OF

CHRISTINA KOCH FROM JESSICA

MEIR'S HELMET AS THEY MAKE THEIR

WAY OUT TO THE P-6 TRESS AS KOCH

IS SETTING UP THE ROBOTIC ARM SO

SHE CAN USE IT TO CARRY THE

BATTERY THAT THEY'LL BE BRINGING

TO P-6.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

NOW JESSICA IS TRANSLATING UNDER

THAT HOLDS THE MOBILE BASE ORTER

SYSTEM THAT OFTEN SECURES THE

ROBOTIC ARM.

AND IN THE POOL, THAT IS THE

DREADED PLACE TO HAVE TO

TRANSLATE.

IT'S -- BECAUSE OF GRAVITY, IT

MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO BE

UNDER THIS STRUCTURE.

JESSICA HASN'T MADE ANY

COMMENTS.

I THINK IT WOULD BE CONSISTENT

WITH OTHER SPACEWALS

EXPERIENCE IN SPACE.

SHE'S THINKING THIS IS WAY

BETTER THAN THE POOL.

>> WE SHOULD FONDLY EXPLAIN WHAT

THE POOL IS, THE --

>> YES.

IT'S WHERE WE TRAIN SUPPORT --

FOR

.

>> AND THAT IS A GOOD LOCATION

TO STOW THE E-BAG.

CHECK YOUR GAUNTLETS ARE IN

PLACE.

>> OKAY.

COPY.

MY GAUNTLETS ARE IN PLACE.

>> COPY.

>> ON JESSICA'S HELMET CAM, YOU

CAN SEE THE GLOW OF THE HORIZON

ON EARTH.

AND AS MAGNIFICENT AS THIS IS TO

SEE, IT WILL PROBABLY NOT BE

ENOUGH TO DISTRA JESSICA RIGHT

NOW ON THE TASK SHE HAS AT-HAND.

THAT'S HOW MUCH YOU CONCENTRATE

OUT THERE.

IT'S SUCH A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT

THAT IT TAKES AS MUCH MENTAL

STRENGTH AS IT DOES PHYSICAL

STRENGTH.

>> YES.

WE TALK A LOT ABOUT HOW

PHYSICALLY HARD IT IS, BUT YOU

COME BACK COMPLETE EXHAUSTED, I

WOULD ASSUME.

>> YES.

YOU THINK AS HARD AS YOU CAN OUT

THERE.

>> COPY, CHRISTINA.

>> I SEE IT.

>> MOVING OUT OF RANGE OF VIDEO

FEED FROM SUN LIGHT FOR A MOMENT

OR TWO.

>> CHRISTINA, I HAVE THE BAG,

BUT I HAVE NOT TAKEN OUT THE

GOPRO YET.

DO YOU WANT ME TO TAKE OUT THE

GOPRO OR IF NOT, YOU CAN TAKE IT

OUT.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'LL GO AHEAD AND TAKE IT OUT.

>> OKAY.

GOOD CALL.

>> OKAY.

WITH THAT, STEPHANIE, I SHOULD

CONSIDER PROGRESSING UPWARDS?

>> YES.

YOU CAN PROGRESS TO HANDRAIL

5312, AND I HAVE ONE CAUTION OR

WARNING IF IT'S A GOOD TIME.

>> OKAY.

GO AHEAD WITH THAT.

>> THERE'S A P-6 SHARP EDGE, AND

THE ONE CAUTION ON P-6, AVOID

CONTACT WITH DD AND STOWED

RAIDATORS.

>> OKAY.

COPY THAT.

>> JESSICA, CHRISTINA, FOR YOUR

INFORMATION, ARM IS IN MOTION.

>> COPY.

>> STILL SEEING THIS VIEW FROM

JESSICA MEIR'S HELMET CAMERA,

SHE'S MAKING HER WAY TO WHAT

WOULD HAVE BEEN THE WORK SITE TO

INSTALL THE NEXT SET OF NEW

BATTERIES IF WE HAD BEEN GOING

THROUGH THE REGULARLY PLANNED

SPACEWALK.

AND SINCE SHE'LL BE PICKING UP

SOME OF THE EQUIPMENT THERE,

BECAUSE SHE AND CHRISTINA KOCH

WILL BE NEEDING IT AS THEY'LL BE

MOVING THE BATTERY

CHARGE-DISCHARGE UNIT AROUND.

>> CHRISTINA, I COPY YOU NOW.

WE'RE IN A PERIOD OF RAT

E-COM FOR THE NEXT SIX MINUTES.

>> CHRISTINA IS GOING TO BE

TALKING WITH LUCA, WHO'S

MANEUVERING THE ARM, AND JESSICA

WILL BE LISTENING TO CHRISTINA.

IT'LL BE INTERESTING TO SEE

THAT.

>> PLEASE REPEAT YOUR LAST.

>> YES.

JUST UPDATIN YOU ON LOCATION,

5104 AND 5103 HANDRAILS, AND WE

WANTED TO CHECK WITH YOU ON THIS

LOCATION FOR THE SETUP OF THE

S.S.R. MAP.

ARE WE WHERE WE NEED TO BE.

>> AND YOU WOULD BE CORRECT.

>> AND STEPHANIE, ON MY WAY,

TETHERING TO GREEN HOOK.

>> COPY, JESSICA.

AND CHRISTINA, IF YOU AR READY

TO WORK WITH LUCA FOR THE

INSTALL, I CAN HAND YOU OVER TO

HIM.

>> OKAY.

STAND BY ONE.

I'LL ASK TO KEEP YOU FOR A

MINUTE LONGER WHILE I REPOSITION

THIS.

COPY.PY THAT.

>> THE APFR IS THE ARTICULATED

PORTABLE FOOT RESTRAINT THAT

CHRISTINA WILL RIDE TO THE NEXT

LOCATION.

>> THE APRF IS ONE OF THOSE

PIECES OF EQUIPMENT THAT WE USE

COMMONLY IN ANY SPACEWALK BUT

IT'S ALSO ONE OF THE MORE

MASSIVE THINGS THAT WE

MANIPULATE DURING A TASK.

WE DO EVERYTHING FROM RETRIEVING

IT TO INSTALLING IT TO

INGRESSING OUR OWN FEET IN IT.

AND IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS

THAT A LOT OF TRAINING IS SPENT

MASTERING THAT, SO IT'S A

REWARDING EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU

GET TO GO INTO SPACE AND USE ONE

BECAUSE IT'S BEEN REPORTED TO BE

A LOT EASIER IN SPACE THAN IT IS

IN TRAINING, SO IT'S A JOY FOR

THEM RIGHT NOW.

>> THAT'S GOOD TO HEAR.

I THINK JESSICA WILL BE USING

ONE SEVERAL TIMES LATER IN THE

SPACEWALK IF THERE'S TIME AS A

SPACEINTERFACES. K SOME WORK

>> OKAY.

IN THE CURRENT LOCATION IS THIS

CONSIDERED THE PUBLIC APFR

INSTALL LOCATION?

>> YES, IT'S CONSIDERED THE

>> COPY THAT.NSTALLITION.

I'M GOING TO TRUSS -- WE'LL GO

WITH 10 CENTIMETERS OR IF IT'S

AN I.E.A., AND I'M SHOWING

THAT'S THE UNIT.

>> OKAY.

I UNDERSTAND THE 10 CENTIMETERS,

CHRISTINA.

>> GOOD READ BACK.

>> THAT DOES SEEM LIKE HARD

OF THE COORDINATION, THE

MINUTE MANEUVERS WITH THE

ROBOTIC ARM TO JUST GET IT IN

THE RIGHT PLACE.

>> OH, IT IS.

AND THE WORDS SPOKEN BETWEEN THE

OPERATOR ARE REALLY IMPORTANT.

WHAT WE TRY TO DO IS TO MINIMIZE

THE ITERATIONS THAT WE GO

THROUGH IN TERMS OF SAYING WHAT

WE WANT AND GETTING THE ARM IN

THE RIGHT POSITION.

AND SO IT'S -- THAT'S WHAT IS

THE GOAL FO THESE TRANSLATIONS

AS WELL AS THE COMMUNICATION

BETWEEN THE CREW.

>> COPY THAT.

GO FOR APFR INSTALL WORK.

>> COPY.

>> AND I WOULD ALSO ADD THE

COORDINATION IS ADDED BY THE

FACT THAT WE AL CROSS TRAIN, SO

LUCA'S BEEN A SPACEWALKER, AND

CHRISTINA'S BEEN AN OPERATOR, SO

THEY KNOW WHAT EACH OTHER NEEDS,

AND THAT AIDS IN MAKING SURE

THAT THEY GET THE POSITIONS THAT

THEY WANT WITHOUT SPENDING A LOT

OF TIME GETTING THERE.

>> THAT MAKES SENSE.

I'M SURE YOU'VE DRIVEN THE

ROBOTIC ARM.

IT'S NOT EASY.

>> IT'S NOT.

WE HAVE THE COMPLICATED SPACE

ROBOTIC ARM TH HAS 7º OF

FREEDOM.

YOU SPEND A LOT OF BRAIN POWER

INTERPRETING THE VIEWS THAT YOU

SEE AND CROSS CHECKING WITH

OTHER VIEWS TO MAKE SURE THAT

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE CONTACT

WITH STRUCTURE.

AND THEN, YOU'VE GOT A LIFE

PERSON ON THE END -- LIVE PERSON

ON THE END OF THE ARM, AND THAT

TURNS IT UP A NOTCH FOR THE

OPERATOR.

>> YOU DEFINITELY DON'T WANT TO

RUN INTO ANYTHING.

>> ABSOLUTELY NOT.

THAT'S YOUR BUDDY.

>> BEEN THROUGH A PERIOD WHERE

WE'RE NOT GETTING DOWN LINK

INFO, BUT IT'S COMING BACK NOW,

AND I THINK WE SHOULD BE OUT OF

THAT AREA WHERE WE'RE DROPPING

IN AND OOW.

>> CHRISTINA AND JESSICA BACK

WITH YOU AFTER THE HANDOVER.

>> CHRISTINA, WE SEE YOU HAVE

THE HAND LOCK BAG IN SIGHT, AND

YOU'LL RETRIEVE THE FOUR SCOOPS.

>> AND THOSE SCOOPS ARE THE

HANDLES THAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT, GETTING THEM OFF THE

NICKEL-HYDROGEN BATTERIES THAT

WERE SET TO BE REPLACED SO WE

CAN MOVE THE NEW AND OLD BATTERY

CHARGE-DISCHARGE UNITS AROUND.

JESSICA WILL BE MOVING THEM

AROUND TO GET THEM INSTALLED AND

MOVING SOME OF HERS AROUND, AS

WELL.

>> AND TRACEY, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR SPENDING TIME WITH US TODAY.

I KNOW YOU HAVE SOME WORK THAT

YOU HAVE TO BE GETTING TOO

ANY PARTING WORDS OR ADVICE

BEFORE HEADING OUT?

>> I JUST WANT TO SEND SOME

POSITIVE VIBES BY WAY OF AIRWAY

SPACEWALKEO THESE TWO TOP-NOTCH

I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A LONG

DAY, AND SO THEY'LL -- THEY'LL

BE FOCUSING AS MUCH WITH THEIR

MIND AS WITH THEIR HANDS, AND SO

I THINK WE CAN EXPECT THEIR

COM TO PROBABLY GET LESS AND

LESS AS THE DAY GOES ON AS THEIR

BRAIN IS FOCUSED ON THE TASK.

BUT I THINK THE THING TO REALLY

PAY ATTENTION TO IS THE UNSPOKEN

COORDINATION BETWEEN THE CREW

AND ESPECIALLY THE TWO THAT ARE

OUTSIDE.

THEY'RE GOOD FRIENDS OUTSIDE OF

THE WORK THAT THEY'RE DOING, AND

I THINK IT IS ESPECIALLY

MEANINGFUL TO BE DOING SOMETHING

AS UNIQUE AND FASCINATING AS A

SPACEWALK, ESPECIALLY WITH

SOMEONE THAT YOU KNOW REALLY

CARES ABOUT YOU, AND THAT'S THE

CASE WITH THOSE TWO, CHRISTINA

AND JESSICA, SO WATCH FOR THAT

COMMUNICATION THAT IS OUTSIDE

THE NORMAL, AND I THINK

U'LL -- THE -- GET A SENSE OF

THE CAMARADERIE THAT YOU HAVE

OUTSIDE THE SPACE STATION TODAY.

>> OKAY.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.

WE'RE 43 MINUTES INTO WHAT'S A

PLANNED 5.5-HOU SPACEWALK.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

>> WELL, THANK YOU.

IT'S BEEN A PRESSURE.

-- IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE.

>> COPY, CHRISTINA.

THOSE ARE GOOD SETTINGS.

FIRST LOC YOUR GREEN HOOK AND

THEN RELOCATE YOUR YELLOW HOOK

TO THE SSME-4 TETHER POINT.

>> COPY THAT.

>> AS YOU CAN SEE, THE

SPACEWALKERS AND THE

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION HAVE

MOVED INTO THE DAYLIGHT PORTION

OF THIS ORBIT AROUND THE EARTH

CURRENTLY OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN

HEADING TOWARDS THE COAST OF

SOUTH AMERICA -- OR CENTRAL

AMERICA, RATHER, AND THIS VIEW

OF CHRISTINA KOCH AND HER SUIT

WITH THE RED STRIPE TO

DISTINGUISH HER FROM JESSICA

MEIR WITH THE ALL WHITE SUIT.

THIS IS JUST WITHIN REACH OF

KOCH SO SHE CAN GET THAT FOOT

RESTRAINT INSTALLED ON THEEND

IT, WHICH SHE WILL THEN CLIMB

INTO AND USE TO MOVE FROM HERE

TO THE P-4 WORK SITE.

AND SHE'LL HAVE A LITTLE WAYS TO

CHARGECHARGE UNIT.

>> JESSICA, SAY AGAIN YOUR LAST?

>>ANIE, THIS GAP SCANNER

IS REALLY LOOSE.

I THINK I'M TO TRY TO

TIGHTEN IT UP A BIT.

>> JESSICA, WE COPY.

>> E.V.-1, MY GREEN HOOK IS

LOCKED.

>> COPY.

>> AND TO CONFIRM, I AM TAKING

MY YELLOW HOOK HARD TO SMS-LEE 4

TETHER POINT.

>> COPY.

STEPHANIE, TIGHTENED THAT GAP UP

QUITE A BIT ON THE AFT SIDE.

I THINK IT'LL BE MORE USEFUL

THAT WAY. JESSICA, WE COPY.

AS YOU'RE COMPLETE WITH THAT,

CAN YOU ALSO GIVE US THE 180º

TEST TURN OF THE BUCKLE.

>> YES.

THERE IS STILL INITIAL SOMETHING

LIKE THAT.

>> COPY THAT.

THANK YOU.

>> GETTING OUR FIRST VIEW FROM

CHRISTINA KOCH'S HELMET CAMERA,

WHICH YOU CAN TELL IS COMING

FROM HERE BY THE NUMBER 18

EMBOSSED IN THE LOWER RIGHT HAND

CORNER THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

AND ALTHOUGH IT'S SHAKY, IT'S A

VIEW OF THE ROBOTIC ARM SHE WILL

BE INSTALLING -- OR HAS

INSTALLED, RATHER.

>> GREEN REEL LOCKED.

>> COPY, GREENREEL LOCKED.

STOW YOUR HANDBAG ON GREEN RAIL

4.

TO BE TAKING #ASKNASA QUESTIONS.

FIRST UP, WE HAVE A QUESTION

FROM AMANDA, WHAT'S THE MOST

CHALLENGING TASK FOR KOCH

IR FOR THE SPACEWALK TODAY?

JUST THE WALK AS WE TALKED ABOUT

WITH TRACEY CALDWELL DYSON, AS

FAR AS THE SPACEWALK, NOTHING

HARD, BUT AS FAR AS THE PIECES

OF EQUIPMENT, THEY'RE LARGE AND

BULKY, AND MOVING AROUND WITH

THE TETHERS AND THEIR HAND HOLDS

CAN BE CHALLENGING.

THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THE

SPACEWALK IS TO CHANGE OUT A

BATTERY CHARGE-DISCHARGE UNIT

WITH AER ONE THAT'S BEEN

STORED ON THE STATION.

THEY'LL DO THAT, AND WRAP UP

WITH A FEW GET-AHEADS IF THERE'S

TIME.

CHA KOCH MOVING AHEAD WITH

A FEW RESTRAINTS TO GET SETUP ON

THE ROBOTIC ARM.

>> AND WE ALSO HAVE A QUESTION

FROM RENEE.

>> STAND BY ONE.

>> RENEE IS ASKING WHAT HAPPENS

DURING THE SWAP OF THE FAILED

ELECTRICAL UNIT.

WILL ELECTRICITY BLACKOUT FOR

THE TIME?

AND NO, THE SPACE STATION HAS A

TOTAL OF 24 BATTERY

CHARGE-DISCHARGE UNITS THAT ARE

TAKING POWER FROM THE STATION'S

FOUR SOLAR ARRAY.

WE DO HAVE PLENTY OF POWER, BUT

WE WANT TO HAVE THE FULL ARRAY

OF POWER THAT WE CAN GET, SO

THAT'S WHY THIS IS GETTING

SWAPPED OUT. COPY.

>> AND STEPHANIE, I'VE GOT ALL

MY STUFF IN THE BAG.

SO I BELIEVE MY SCENE OF THE

ACCIDENT -- NEXT STEP --

>> GOOD VIEW FROM JESSICA MEIR'S

ET CAMERA.

SHE'S WORKING THROUGH THE WORK

STEPS SETUP WITH STEPHANIE

WILSON HERE ON THE GROUND.

SHE'S BEEN RETRIEVING SOME

HANDLES THAT WILL BE USED DURING

TODAY'S SPACEWALK, MOVING THEM

OFF OF BATTERIES THAT WILL

BE REPLACED.

SHE'S ALSO PICKING UP A FOOT

RESTRAINT THAT SHE'LL BE INSTALL

BACK AT P-6, THE SEGMENT OF

TRUSS THAT THEY'LL BE SPEN

THE MOST TIME WORKING AT TODAY.

>> CHRISTINA, WE COPY, AND YES,

PLEASE WORK WITH LUCA.

>> OKAY.

LUCA, I AM READY WHEN YOU ARE.

>> OKAY, STINA, I AM GOING TO

HAVE A FINE E.T.A. MOTION AND

IT'S GOING TO BE SPECIAL MOTION

FORWARD ABOUT 2.1 METERS.

>> COPY THAT, AND CONCUR.

>> STARTING MOTION.

>> COPY.

>> HEARING LUCA PARMITANO'S

VOICE, AND YOU SEE THE ARM

MOVING AWAY FROM CHRISTINA KOCH

THERE.

KOCH IS ON WHAT WE CALL THE

CTA-K CART.

>> ONE KOCH IS IN THIS FOOT

RESTRAINT ON THE ROBOTIC ARM,

IT'LL MOVE HER TO THE LOCATION

OF THE DISCHARGE OF THE SPARE,

WHERE SHE'LL BE PICKING IT UP.

VIEW OF ANOTHER FOOT RESTRAIN

THAT JESSICA MEIR IS PICKING UP.

THIS WAS GOING TO, AGAIN, BE

USED IN A BATTERY SWAP NEXT

WEEK, BUT THIS IS GOING TO BE

SITE SO THAT SHE AND CHRISTINA

KOCH CAN USE IT TODAY.

>> SEEING A LOT OF #ASKNASA

QUESTIONS COMING IN.

THIS ONE IS FROM NONI, ASKING

ABOUT THE WEIGHT OF THE SPACE

SUITS AND DO THEY AFFECT THE

ASTRONAUTS?

ON EARTH,EY WEIGH ABOUT 300

POUNDS, SO THEY'RE NOT EASY TO

BE USED IN GRAVITY.

IN NONGRAVITY, THEY'RE ABLE TO

FLOAT, BUT IT TAKES A LOT TO

PROT THE ASTRONAUTS FROM THE

ENVIRONMENT OF SPACE.

IT HAS EVERYTHING THEY NEED

OUTSIDE OF THE SPACE STATION, SO

THEY HAVE TO BE -- BE CAREFUL

AND BE REALLY TRAINED IN HOW TO

MOVE AROUND IN THE SPACE SUITS.

THEY ALSO -- AS WE TALKED ABOUT

BEFORE, THEY LEFT THE AIR LOCK,

ADD PADDING INSIDE THE SPACE

SUIT TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE MOST

COMFORTABLE IN IT, FOR EXAMPLE,

THEIR HANDS AREN'T SLIPPING

INSIDE THE GLOVES WHEN THEY'RE

BENDING THEIR ELBOW OR THEIR

FEET AREN'T MOVING AS THEY'RE

GETTING INSIDE THE FOOT

REST AS CHRISTINA KOCH IS

HERE.

ANOTHER QUESTION, HOW DO THE

ASTRONAUTS TRAIN FOR THE

SPACEWALKS?

>> COPY.

INGRESS AND INGRESS A TO STOW,

NICE WORK.

RETRIEVE THE BAG ON HANDRAIL

5120 AND REPLACE IT ON YOUR

B.R.T.

>> CHRISTINA KOCH REPORTING THAT

SHE IS IN THAT FOOT RESTRAINT

NOW, SO SHE SHOULD BE GETTING

THAT --

>> GIVE ME JUST A SECOND TO SET

IT UP, AND I'LL GO FROM HERE.

>> GETTING BACK TO MR. WILSON'S

SCIENCE CLASS QUESTION, THE

ASTRONAUTS HAVE A NUMBER OF WAYS

THAT THEY TRAIN IN HERE ON THE

GROUND.

ONE WAY IS THE NEUTRAL BUOYANCY

LABORATORY.

WE HAVE AN ENORMOUS FULL-SIZE

MOCK UP OF THE SPACE STATION

INSIDE THE POOL SO THEY'RE ABLE

TO MOVE AROUND IN IT JUST AS

THEY DO I SPACE, BUT UNDERWATER

ISN'T A PERFECT COMPARISON.

SO WE ALSO DO VIRTUAL REALITY

WITH THE SPACEWALKERS AND WE

HAVE A SYSTEM THAT PUTS THEM IN

A HARNESS AND USES PULLEYS TO

MAKE IT FEEL LIKE THEY ARE IN

ZERO GRAVITY SO THEY CAN SEE HOW

THE TOOLS WORK AND MICROGRAVITY

WILL WORK A LITTLE DIFFERENT

THAN THEY ARE IN THE SWIMMING

POOL.

>> OKAY.

I WILL TAKE AN ADDITIONAL 20,

PLEASE.

>> ANOTHER 20.

SAME DIRECTION?

>> COPY, BRAKES ARE ON.

>> YOU CAN SEE IN THAT VIEW FROM

JESSICA MEIR'S HELMET CAMERA, A

VIEW OF THE BANDS THAT

ASTRONAUTS WHERE ON THEIR WRIST.

THAT IS A WAY THAT T CREW CAN

SEE THE CONTROLS ON THEIR SPACE

SUIT WHICH IS ON THE CHEST OF

THE SPACE SUIT.

WITH THE HELMETS AND THE BULKY

SPACE SUITS THEMSELVES, THEY'RE

ABLE TO USE THE MIRRORS AND JUST

THE CONTROLS AS NEEDED.

THEY'RE ABLE TO ADJUSTMENT THE

WATER IN THE UNDERGARMENTS THEY

WEAR TO KEEP THEM AT A

COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE AS THEY

MOVE THROUGH THE DAY AND NIGHT

CYCLES ON THE INTERNATIONAL

SPACE STATION.

AND THOSE CONTROLS ARE ACTUALLY

PRINTED BACKWARDS SO THEY SHOW

UP CORRECTLY IN THE MIRROR.

>> STILL SEEING CHRISTINA KOCH

ON THE END OF THE ROBOTIC ARM

THAT'S GOING TO BE MOVING HERE

TO THE LOCATION OF THE BATTY

CHARGE-DISCHARGE UNIT WORK SITE.

SHE'LL GET OUT OF THE -- OFF OF

THE ROBOTIC ARM AND WITH THE

HELP OF JESSICA MEIR, CARRY THE

BATTERYCHARGE-DISCHARGE UNIT

WHERE THEY'LL BE INSTALLING IT.

>> IN PLACE.

ARE STILL WATCHING, AND WE AREE

GETTING STILL LOTS OF QUESTIONS

AND WELL WISHES FROM PEOPLE AT

HOME AND IN SCHOOLS.

WE'VE GOT A FEW MORE HERE TO

SHARE.

THIS ONE FROM ANDREW KILGORE

SAYING THAT ONE OF THE FAVORITE

PAST TIMES FORIM IS TO WATCH

THE SPACE STATION FLY OVER AND

THAT HIS DAUGHTER FINDS IT

INSPIRING NOT ONLY TO SEE IT

FLYING OVER, BUT THAT THERE ARE

WOMEN UP THERE ON THE SPACE

STATION PERFORMING A SPACEWALK

TODAY.

WE ALSO HAVE ONE FROM JOHN BADY

SHOWING A GO GIRLS -- GO GIRLS

GO SIGN THAT HIS DAUGHTERS

MADE.

AND FINALLY THIS ONE FROM

ISABELLE SHOWING HER FOUR AND A

HALF-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER IN HER

OWN -- HER OWN FLIGHT SUIT

THERE.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL THE WELL

WISHES THAT EVERYONE IS SENDING

IN.

KEEP SENDING THEM IN AND KEEP

SENDING IN YOUR QUESTIONS USING

THE #KNASA.

WE WILL ANSWER THOSE THROUGHOUT

TODAY'S SPACEWALK.

>> SETTING IT UP.

>> COPY.

WE CALL THAT COMPLETE FOR THE

MANUAL MANEUVER.

>> AND COPY.

SETTING UP FOR THE -- FROM THIS

POSITION.

>> COPY.

>> WE ARE IN POSITION.

COPY.

>> COPY THAT.

IF YOU ARE TIME TO LOOK THERE'S

A BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE DELOPING.

>> YEAH.

LOOKING AT IT.

I'M AT 5106 NOW.

I'M IN POSITION, WATCHING THE

SUNSET.

>> WE COPY, JESSICA.

>> JESSICA MEIR REPORTING THAT

SHE'S IN PLACE AT THE 367894

TRUSS WHERE CHRISTINA WILL BE

MOVING WITH THE NEW BAT CHARGE

CHARGE.

SHE MENTIONED THE SPACE STATION

WILL BE COMING INTO THE DAYLIGHT

PORTION OF THIS ORBIT IN JUST A

SHE WILL BE ABLE TO WATCH THE

SUNRISE OVER THE SOUTH PACIFIC

OCEAN.

>> SUNRISE IN THREE MINUTES.

>> COPY, STEPHANIE.

>> WHEN THINGS ARE QUIET WE WILL

TAKE A COUPLE MORE AND NASA

QUESTIONS.

THIS IS FROM A FIFTH GRADE

SCIENCE CLASS.

SINCE THE SPACE STATION IS SOLAR

POWERED, WHAT HAPPENS TO THE

ENERGY WHEN YOU ARE ON THE DARK

SIDEOF THE EARTH?

THE ANSWER TO THAT, THAT IS ONE

OF THE THINGS THAT THE BATTERY

CHARGE DISCHARGE UNIT TAKES CARE

OF.

IT MAKES SURE THAT WHILE THE

SOLAR ARRAYS ARE GETTING FULL

SUNLIGHT, IT ACTUALLY GENERATES

MORE POWER THAN THE SPACE

STATION NEEDS.

IT STORES THE EXTRA POWER AND

THEN MAKES SURE THE POWER LEVELS

STAY STEADY GOING FROM THE SOLAR

ARRAYS TO THE SPACE STATION

SYSTEM WHEN IT MOVES INTO THE

DARK PERIODS OF THE ORBIT AUND

THE EARTH SO THAT JUST BECAUSE

THEY MOVE INTO THE DARK, THEY

DON'T HAVE TO TURN OFF ANY OF

THE SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS.

GETTING THIS BATTERY CHARGE

DISCHARGE UNIT BACK IN ORDER

WILL HELP ENSURE THAT THIS POWER

STREAM ON THE SPACE STATION CAN

GENERATE ITS FULL 12 TO 15

KILL WATTS FOR THE SPACE STATION

NOW WITH ONE OF THE THREE

BATTERY AND BATTERY CHARGE

DISCHAR UNIT SETS DOWN THEY

ARE GETTING ABOUT 4 OR

5 KILOWATTS LESS THAN THEY LIKE

TO SEE ON THAT STREAM.

IN ALL THERE ARE ABOUT 24 ARE

THESE BATTERY CHARGE DISCHARGE

UNITS ON THE SPACE STATION.

THIS IS THE SECOND ONE THEY HAVE

REPLACED.

>> JUST A HEADS UP, WE MAY

EXPERIENCE COME PROBLEMS THE

NEXT FIVE MINUTES.

SPORADIC COM.

>> I'VE GOT A GOOD VIEW OF YOU

CHRISTINA, I'M BASICALLY JUST

PORT OF YOU.

I'M SUMING THIS MANEUVER IS

GOING TO BRING YOU -- IT'S

BRINGING YOU STILL PORT.

>> COPY.

>> AND IF YOU CAN BE WHERE THE

GREEN HOOK IS, MY GREEN HOOK IS

JUST IN BOARD OF WHERE I WILL

END UP.

I'M READY FOR THE TWO AND A

HALF.

>> IN MOTION.

>> WHILE CHRISTINA KOCH BEGINS

HER RIDE ON THE ROBOTIC ARMOVER

TO P4 TRUSS SEGMENT WE WILL

TAKE A SEGMENT TO ACKNOWLEDGE

THAT NOT ONLY ARE WE CELEBRATING

THIS HISTORIC FIRST WITH TWO

WOMEN PERFORMING A SPACEWALK AT

THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

TODAY, BUT WE ARE ALSO

CELEBRATING THE MANY FIRSTS THAT

HAVOME BEFOIT.

I WILL SHOW YOU THIS ONE FROM

ASTRONAUT SHANNON LUCID.

HAVING JUST SEEN AT VIDEO,

IT'S ALSO A GOOD TIME TO MARK

TODAY IS THE 30th ANNIVERSARY

OF THE LAUNCH OF ATLANTIS, SPACE

SHUTTLE ATLANTIS ON THE 34

MISSION.

SHANNON WAS ON BOARD THAT SPACE

SCHULTZ AS IT WENT TO SEND THE

GALILEO P TO JUPITER.

ALSO ON BOARD WAS ASTRONAUT

ELLEN BAKER.

>> BE READY SO WHEN WE POP IT IN

WE'RE -- IF YOU COULD HEAD OUT

AND WE WILL KNOW THAT FENDER

OUT, YOU'VE GOT EACH ONE.

> YEAH.

SO I THINK I'M GOING TO BE IN

EITHER THIS OR THIS ORIENTATION

SO THE WAY I HAVE MY BRT RIGHT

NOW -- RIGHT.

YEP WITH.

>> GREAT VIEW HERE OF BOTH

CHRISTINA KOCH ON THE END OF THE

ROBOTIC ARM WITH THE RED SPES

ON THE LEGS OF HER SPACE SUIT

AND JUST VISIBLE BELOW HER,

JESSICA MEIR WAIT AT THE

P4 TRUSS SEGMENT.

>> PROBABLY GOOD BECAUSE YOUR --

STAYS IN BOARD AND I CAN EFFORT

IT.

I DON'T SEE ANY REASON WE CAN'T

GET THAT OUTWARD ALONG THE HAND

RAILS.

>> OKAY.

>> WE MAY HAVE TO TUG IT A

LITTLE BIT, BUT I THINK IT WILL

BE FINE.

>> COPY.

>> YOU ARE ON STATION HOLD AT

THIS POSITION.

WE CAN TAKE A DCA FOR THE HAND

OFF OR WHATEVER YOU TELL ME.

>> COPY THAT.

JESSICA WHETHER TAKE IT -- LET'S

THINK ABOUT HOW WE ARE GOING TO

DO THIS RIGHT NOW, OKAY?

>> OKAY.

>> SO YOU HAVE H2 YOUR HAND?

>> THAT'S CORRECT, I'M ROUTED TO

H2.

>> WE HAVEN'T STARTED -- WE WILL

SAY WE HAVEN'T STARTED BCA YET

SO LET'S ASK STEPHANIE.

STEPHANIE, DO WE HAVE IT

CORREC H2 AND THAT WILL GO

TO JESSICA'S BRT?

>> CHING.

CHRINA AND JCA, EITHER

WAY WILL WORK.

>> OKAY.

>> I THINK THAT THE ONE

ADVANTAGE.

ME HANDING YOU H1 IS THAT YOU

CAN DO THE REP SWAP.

NOT A HUGE DEAL EITHER WAY.

AND THEN WE ALSO NEED TO THINK

ABOUT -- THAT.

SO I HAND IT TO YOU, I COULD

PIVOT IT LIKE THIS AND THEN YOU

CAN COMPLETE PIVOT TO KEEP THE

SPINS AWAY.

>> CHRISTINA, STRUCTURE IT.

>> COPY THAT.

>> LET'S HOLD OFF JUST FOR A

MOMENT BUT I THINK I LIKE YOUR

IDEA OF GETTING INTO THAT

POSITION BEFORE WE MAKE ALL OUR

FINAL PLANS.

>> I THINK WE ARE GOING TO NEED

CLOSER AND I'M ALSO GOING TO

WATCH.

I'M GOING TO TRY TO MOVE A

LITTLE TO MY -- HERE BECAUSE I

DON'T WANT THAT TO END UP IN THE

FINISHES.

>> THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING,

AS WELL.

WITH YOUR ORIENTATION, JESSICA,

I THINK THIS HAND-OFF POSITION

IS THE BEST.

WE WILLCTUALLY HAVE TO SPIN

FORWARD.

>> OKAY.

THIS IS OUT OF YOUR WAY, RIGHT

IN FRONT OF ME.

>> I LIKE HOW YOU HAVE

FINISHES RIGHT THERE.

>> I WONDER IF WE CAN GET IT ON

MY BRT?

>> THAT'S WHAT I'M HOPING.

DO YOU THINK HALF METER IS TOO

MUCH IN OR SHOULD WE TAKE THAT

AND EVALUATE THAT?

>> I THINK WE SHOULD COME IN

MAYBE .25 METERS INSTEAD, AND

THEN WE MIGHT NEED TO COME A

LITTLE CLOSER TO ME.

>> OKAY, COPY.

>> LUCA, LET'S TAKE HALF OF THAT

DISTANCE YOU PUBLISHED.

>> COPY.

I WILL START MOTION.

JESSICA, YEP, I AGREE, AT THE

SAME TIME IF YOU HAVE A BETTER

HANDRAIL CONFIGURE IN ONE SPOT,

WE HAVE THAT CAPABILITY.

YOU CAN EVALUATE THAT.

BUT LOOKS LIKE 5105 IS ALSO

GOING TO WORK.

>> IF I GET A LITTLE CLOSER DO

YOU THINK YOU CAN GET THE BRT ON

THERE?

>> I THINK I COULD.

I MIGHT ACTUALLY SAY A LITTLE

MORE INWARD WOULD HELP ME

ACHIEVE THAT.

I THINK A LITTLE MORE GPA IN

BOARD.

OKAY.

STAND BY.

>> COPY.

TAKE YOUR TIME.

I'M IN A GOOD SPOT.

>> WE COULD COME -- I KNOW IT'S

REALLY HARD TO LOOK OUT FROM

STRUCTURE.

I ACTUALLY H CLEARANCES NOW

WITH THE ORIENTATION I'M HOLDING

IT IN.

I KNOW IT'S VERY HARD TO LOOK

OUT.

>> YEAH.

I DO HAVE A GOOD VIEW SO I WILL

BACK YOU UP, BUT YOU CAN GO FOR

IT.

>> OKAY, LUCA.

IF YOU ARE STILL THERE, WE ARE

GOING TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF

ADDITIONAL GPA.

>> I'M ASSUMING I'M HERE FOR YOU

GUYS.

>> ALL RIGHT.

TURNS OUT MAYBE ANOTHER 20 WOULD

BE BEST.

WE WILL TAKE 20 MORE CENTIMETERS

IN THE SAME DIRECTION WE WERE

GOING TOWARD STRUCTURE.

>> BRAKES OFF.

>> COPY.

>> SPACEWALKER CHRISTINA KOCH

AND JESSMEIR THERE

NEGOTIATING HOW THEY WILL DO A

SWAP HERE.

CHRISTINA KOCH HAS THE NEW

BATTERY CHARGE DISCHARGE UNIT IN

HER HANDS AND MOVING TOWARDS THE

P4 TRUSS SEGMENT WHERE JESSICA

MEIR IS WAITING.

THEY WILL GO TOGETHER FROM P4 TO

P6.

THAT IS WHERE THE FAILED BATTERY

CHARGE DISCHARGE UNIT IS WAITING

TO BE REMOVED AND THEY CAN SWAP

IT FOR THIS NEW ONE.

>> STEPHANIE, WE ARE BACK WITH

YOU.

>> COPY, CHRISTINA AND JESSICA.

NICE WORK.

AS YOU DISCUSSED, YOU WOULD BE

PERFORM A RED SWAP AND PLACING

THE UNIT ON JESSICA'S BRT.

HERE.

I'M STILL IN CONTROL OF IT SO I

DIRECTION.T IN A CERTAIN

>> IF YOU CAN MAINTAIN THE

POSITION RIGHT NOW.

I CAN GET IT BACK A LITTLE BIT.

I WAS THINKING LIKE THIS, A

LITTLE BIT BEHIND ME.

AND IF YOU ARE READY, I WILL GO

AHEAD AND REMOVE MY HANDS FROM

MY SCOOP ANDTHEN YOU CAN -- IN

THE DIRECTION YOU LIKE.

>> OKAY.

I'M READY.

>> OKAY.

I HAVE CONTROL OF THE UNIT.

PERFECT.

ALL OF HER SAFETY FEATHERS INTO

A GOOD CONFIGURATION SO THAT SHE

CAN BEGIN WORKING HERE ON THE

PORT SIDE OF THE STATION'S

TRUSS.

SHE AND JESSICA MEIR WILL BE

MOVING THAT NEW BATTERY CHARGE

DISCHARGE UNIT INTO PLACE ON THE

P6 TRUSS.

THEY ARE CURRENTLY ON THE P4

SEGMENT OF THE TRUSS, WHICH IS A

LITTLE CLOSER TO THE CENTER.

SO P6 WORK SIDE IS A LITT

FURTHER AWAY FROM THE SPACE

STATION'S ROBOTIC ARM CAN

REACH.

SO MEIR AND KOCH WILL BE

CARRYING THE NEW UNIT THE REST

OF THE WAY BY HAND RATHER THAN

GETTING THAT RIDE ON THE ROBOTIC

ARM THAT THEY GOT FOR THIS FAR.

>> CHRISTINA, JESSICA, BACK WITH

OU.

AFTER THE HANDOVER, AND

CHRISTINA, YOU ARE CORRECT.

NEXT IS APFR REMOVAL.

IF YOU NEED, YOU CAN WORK WITH

LUCA FOR A GCA.

>> OKAY.

I DON'T THINK WE WILL NEED A

GCA.

JESSICA, JUST TO MENTION IT TO

YOU, I SEE Y HAVE THE ORU

ORIENTED NOW -- STILL AWAY WITH

WHILE THEY MAKE THEIR WAY, WE

HAVE A FEW MORE AND NASA

QUESTIONS.

>> THE GREEN HOOKS AGAIN.

>> THIS ONE FROM SEVENTH GRADE

CLASS IN LONDON ASKING HOW LONG

THE ASTRONAUTS HAVE BEEN ON THE

SPACEWALK AT THIS POINT?

THEY JUST MADE IT TO 2 HOURS, 43

MINUTES SO FAR.

THE ENTIRE SPACEWALK WITH IS

PLANNED TO LAST AROUND 5 1/2

HOURS BUT THAT IS A LITTLE FLUID

BASED ON HOW MUCH THEY GET

DONE.

>> JESSICA, THIS

LUCA.

IT'S A PLEASURE WORKING WITH YOU

GUYS.

WE ARE READY START THE MOTION

AND THEN AFTER THAT WE WILL GO

STATION.

CHRISTIKOCH IS ACTUALLY ON

HER 217th DAY TODAY.

IT IS THE 23RD DAY IN SPACE FOR

JESSICA MEIR.

MEIR JUST LAUNCHED IN

SEPTEMBER.

SHE WILL BE STAYING UNTIL THE

SPRING.

KOCH HAS HAD HER MISSION

EXTENDED.

SHE WILL BE STAYING ALMOST A

YEAR, NOT QUITE.

BUT SHE ACTUALLY ARRIVED AT THE

SPACE STATION IN MARCH AND WILL

BE STAYING UNTIL FEBRUARY.

ONCE SHE'S DONE, SHE WILL BREAK

THE RECORD FOR THE LONGEST

SINGLE-SPACEFLIGHT BY A WOMAN

CURRENTLY HELD BY PEGGY WITSON.

WITSON HAS 288 DAYS ON HER

LONGEST SPACEFLIGHT AND KOCH

WILL REACH THAT POINT ON

DECEMBER 28th.
