Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough and Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson of NASA discussed upcoming spacewalk activity associated with the replacement of batteries on the station’s truss and other aspects of life and research on the orbital laboratory during a pair of in-flight interviews Jan. 3 with the Associated Press and the CBS Radio Network. Kimbrough and Whitson will venture outside the station’s Quest airlock Jan. 6 to install adapter plates and hook up electrical cables as part of complex robotics and spacewalk tasks to replace nickel-hydrogen batteries on the station’s right side truss with new lithium-ion batteries. Kimbrough will conduct a second spacewalk on Jan. 13 with Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency) to continue the work.
