European Space Agency-ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti will today head outside the International Space Station on a spacewalk alongside cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev.
This will be the third spacewalk to include tasks around getting the European Robotic Arm ready for its first operations on Nauka.
It will be Samantha’s first spacewalk, and the first conducted by a European woman. The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 14:00 BST / 15:00 CEST.
You can watch the spacewalk live via ESA Web TV.
