Kate Rubins and Soichi Noguchi will venture outside the orbiting outpost to vent ammonia from the Early Ammonia System and complete several other tasks. The pair will install a “stiffener” on the Quest airlock thermal cover to prevent it from blowing out when residual atmosphere escapes as the hatch is opened. Glover began addressing this issue on a previous spacewalk by installing a stronger magnet to keep the cover closed. The crew also will remove and replace a wireless video transceiver assembly.

Rubins will be extravehicular crew member 1 (EV 1) wearing red stripes. Noguchi will be extravehicular crew member 2 (EV 2) and wear a suit with no stripes.

This will be the fourth spacewalk in both Rubins and Noguchi’s career.
