Russian Cosmonauts Perform Spacewalk Outside ISS

Two Russian Cosmonauts went on a spacewalk outside the International Space Station in preparation for the arrival of a new Russian module, Wednesday, June 2.

The spacewalk is expected to last six hours as the cosmonauts attempt to disconnect all mechanical links between the existing Russian service module and the station.

This marks the sixth spacewalk of 2021, but the first for Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov. (REUTERS)
