Today’s spacewalk with Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin was postponed due to an issue with the water coolant system pump on Prokopyev’s Orlan spacesuit. The team is in the process of returning onboard systems to a nominal configuration. The duo, with assistance from European robotic arm operator Anna Kikina of Roscosmos, were slated to relocate a radiator from the Rassvet module to the Nauka science module on the International Space Station.
Today’s spacewalk would have continued the duo’s previous spacewalk on Nov. 17 where they prepared the radiator for its relocation. A back-up date for today’s spacewalk is to be determined.
