Spacewalking astronauts grease robot arm's new hand

Space Station Astronauts Taking Spacewalk Today Watch It Live

On Tuesday, NASA astronauts #Randy Bresnik and Mark Vande Hei ventured out of the International Space Station (ISS) to install a new high-definition (HD) video camera outside the orbiting post.

The spacewalking duo switched their spacesuits to internal battery power at 7:56 a.m. EDT (1156 GMT) to begin the planned six-and-a-half hour excursion.

Vande Hei and station commander Randy Bresnik replaced the latching mechanism on one end of the 58-foot robot arm last Thursday. NASA astronaut Joe Acaba and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli will help the spacewalkers get suited up and out the door. Vande Hei is designated EV 2 and will wear a plain white spacesuit with no red stripes. Relubing after LEE replacing was necessary to prepare robotic arm for another years of flawless service.

This spacewalk was the fourth for Bresnik's career and the second for Vande Hei.
