Russian cosmonauts complete station spacewalk to prepare radiator for move

Two components on the Russian side of the International Space Station are about to be moved by robot after two cosmonauts performed a spacewalk to prepare the parts for their move.

Expedition 68 Commander Sergey Prokopyev and Flight Engineer Dmitry Petelin, both of Russian federal space company Roscosmos, conducted a six-hour, 25-minute EVA (extravehicular activity) on Thursday (Nov 17) to prepare an airlock and a radiator for their transfer from one Russian module to another. The hardware was launched to the station 12 years ago aboard a NASA space shuttle and is now being repositioned to support a newer module.
