After his first spacewalk on Wednesday, Thomas Pesquet will have to make a new spacewalk outside the International Space Station to continue installing a solar panel.
This is his second space flight in the fourth week of his career. Thomas Pesquet will make a new spacewalk on Sunday, June 20 as part of the Alpha mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
From 10 a.m. this morning for about 6 hours, the French astronaut must continue to install a solar panel in the company of the USS Shane Kimbrough.
On Wednesday, during their previous spacewalks, the two astronauts encountered a technical problem and were unable to complete the installation. If all goes well on Sunday, Thomas Pesquet and Shane Kimbrough can make a third trip to continue installing six solar panels to increase the power capacity of the International Space Station.
