Thomas Pesquet – EVA preparations


Thomas Pesquet from France has been onboard the International space Station since 19 November 2016. He is about to take part in his first Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA, or spacewalk), performing maintenance outside the Space Station to upgrade its batteries to newer lithium-ion versions. Intensive preparations for this procedure took place in the months leading up to launch, with classroom sessions at NASA’s Johnson Space Centre in conjunction with underwater training in NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab.

  1. C'est surement ce que vous avez de plus difficile a faire là-haut mais tu vas gerer comme un chef Thomas ! Tu es dans le cœur de millions de gens qui comme moi te soutiennent par la pensée! Profites bien de cette sortie et je t'en souhaite d'autres si la NASA le veut bien ! 😀 Un big up a toutes les personnes qui participent de pres ou de loin a cette aventure exceptionnelle qu'est l'ISS ! Bravo !
