Right this moment’s spacewalk with Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin was postponed resulting from a problem with the water coolant system pump on Prokopyev’s Orlan spacesuit. The group is within the technique of returning onboard methods to a nominal configuration. The duo, with help from European robotic arm operator Anna Kikina of Roscosmos, have been slated to relocate a radiator from the Rassvet module to the Nauka science module on the Worldwide House Station.
