The Russian astronauts were late in an outer space


Astronauts of Roskosmos Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev have carried out behind a board of the International Space Station of 7 hours 46 minutes instead of the planned 6 hours 10 minutes. The delay is connected with the large volume of works on installation of the antenna and other equipment for the Russian-German experiment Ikarus, Interfax reports. The head of the flight and space center of Energiya rocket and space corporation Alexander Kaleri has explained that the delay has mainly arisen when laying cables. "There was rather long cable route, it is always complex work. There is a lot of cables, it is necessary to move, both to be insured and to put them in order" — Kaleri has told. Astronauts had to reduce amount of works on other experiment under the name "Test" because of it. In his framework the devices exhibits with microorganisms placed in August, 2017 on an external surface of the Russian segment of the ISS which will return to Earth later were dismantled. There they will be investigated by the scientists studying temporary restrictions of maintaining viability of microorganisms in the conditions of an outer space. It is noted that spacewalk was the second for the Russian astronauts in 2018. In February astronauts Anton Shkaplerov and Alexander Misurkin have set a record on duration of stay in an outer space among colleagues from Russia. In total they were in a vacuum of 8 hours 13 minutes, for 6 minutes having blocked Sergey Ryazansky and Oleg Kotov's achievement. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel.
