Russian Spacewalkers Dubrov & Shkaplerov | International Space Station

Russian Spacewalkers Dubrov & Shkaplerov | International Space Station

Jan. 19, 2022: Cosmonauts Pyotr Dubrov (attached to the bottom left portion of the Prichal docking module) and Anton Shkaplerov (attached to the top right of Prichal) work to configure and activate Russia's newest module with the Russian segment of the International Space Station during a seven-hour and 11-minute spacewalk. NASA Flight Engineer Vande Hei, who assisted the spacewalkers on Thursday, also joined the pair on Friday helping remove U.S. lights and cameras installed on the Orlan spacesuits.

Anton Shkaplerov of Roscosmos is the current commander of International Space Station Expedition 66.

The International Space Station (ISS) Program’s greatest accomplishment is as much a human achievement as it is a technological one—how best to plan, coordinate, and monitor the varied activities of the Program’s many organizations.

An international partnership of space agencies provides and operates the elements of the ISS. The principals are the space agencies of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada. The ISS has been the most politically complex space exploration program ever undertaken.
