Two NASA astronauts completed the first in a series of three spacewalks to continue upgrading the power supply for the International Space Station (ISS). 

Expedition 68 crewmates Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio worked together on Tuesday (Nov. 15) to prepare the exterior of the space station for the addition of two more upgraded solar arrays. Their extravehicular activity (EVA) was the sixth spacewalk since June 2021 to be dedicated to the new ISS Roll Out Solar Arrays, or iROSAs, which are augmenting the station’s existing solar panel wings.
