That’s right; Both have the first name, Sergei, and are pronounced the same way. This is Raishiko’s second time at the space station, and Good-Sverko’s first. This is the first spacewalk for the two astronauts.
Worried about excluding two astronauts? Ryzykov, the current Commander of Expedition 64, will wear the Russian Orlan space suit with red stripes, while Good-Sverkov will wear a space suit with blue stripes.
During a press conference at the space station in October, Ryzhikov will be appointed as EV1 and Good-Sverkov as EV2 – which is more confusing than what is referred to as “Sergei 1” and “Sergei 2”.
NASA astronaut Kate Rubins, who was launched with astronauts from Kazakhstan in October, will help the guys stay fit and monitor their progress throughout space travel.
The live broadcast of the spacecraft, which starts at 9:30 a.m. ET, will be streamed on NASA’s website. The space walk is expected to last about six hours.
It is the assembly and maintenance of the station, the 232nd overall space orbit and the 47th Russian space orbit to contribute to the eighth place this year.
First, the astronauts will inspect the hatch for leaks outside the Russian Boise block because it will be used as an aircraft once the new block arrives.
The new Russian multipurpose laboratory module, called “Nauka” in Russian for “science”, will be replaced by the Russian Birs module. Birs will be fired, unopened and removed in the future.
Nauka will start from Kazakhstan next year. In the meantime, a number of space routes will be needed to relocate assets from the Birs and Zaria blocks to prepare for Nauca’s arrival in April 2021.
“We welcome any and all modules, especially if there is room for them,” Rubins said in October.
Then there were 7
Zero Gravity Indicators, usually cute toys, let the crew know when they reach space after launch. As soon as the toy starts to float, they know they are in space.
Yud, a small astronaut knitted by Good-Svergo’s wife Olga, went with them in early October. According to NASA, each team should take their own indicator.
Crew-1 took NASA astronauts Victor Clover Jr., Michael Hopkins and Shannon Walker and Sochi Nokuchi of Japan to the space station for a six-month stay.
NASA’s Commercial Crew program could expand the astronauts’ size in space – meaning more scientific and new types of experiments could take place in the unique microgravity environment.
All seven groups held a reception on Tuesday.
This is a historic moment for the space station. This is the first long-term crew of the space station in 20 years, including seven members. November 2 marks 20 years of continuous human existence on the space station.
Earlier, the space station catered to 13 people, but only a few days later the crew arrived.
