Spacewalk with Astronauts Steve Bowen and Woody Hoburg (June 9, 2023) (Official NASA Broadcast)


NASA astronauts Steve Bowen and Warren “Woody” Hoburg are taking a spacewalk on Friday, June 9, to add a new unrolling solar panel to the International Space Station.

Bowen and Hoburg are scheduled to install an International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Array, or IROSA, on today’s spacewalk, with a second one to be installed on June 15. The new arrays will increase the power capacity of the orbiting laboratory.

The spacewalk, known formally as U.S. EVA 87, is scheduled to begin at 9:15 a.m. EDT (1315 UTC) and last about six and a half hours. Bowen will wear a suit with red stripes and Hoburg will wear an unmarked suit. This is Bowen’s ninth spacewalk and the first for Hoburg.
