Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer Repair Spacewalk #3, Dec. 2, 2019


Astronauts Andrew Morgan of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency (ESA) will venture outside the International Space Station starting at ~6:50 a.m. EST to continue repairing the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) instrument. This is the third in a series of repair spacewalks – the most complex of this kind since the servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope. AMS is attached to the outside of the space station, where it has been operating since 2011. It is a particle physics experiment working to help us understand dark matter and the origins of the universe.

  1. Hi.. sry im not up to date.. is the AMS repaired now? Or will there be another eva as the description mentions a "series" of repair spacewalks.. if so when will it be?

  2. I don't understand how anybody can survive in a near vacuum with the spacesuits that they have on. An external vacuum would make the suit expand and become rigid to where movement would become impossible. How does the spacesuit able to withstand this? Also, when the astronaut exhales, where does the exhaled breath go. When the astronaut inhales, they are doing so from a compressed source. Where does all of the expanded air go as they breath?

  3. Às 02:28:00 ele muda de comportamento subtamente, faz sinal para cortar com as mãos, fica em silêncio, passa algo sobre ele e então ele volta ao comportamento padrão. E aos 2:47:00 passa outro sobre eles e é refletido nas artes metálicas, ele nota e aponta, e depois faz gesto com a mão, como quem diz que não pode fazer nada. Observem!
