Astronauts Nicole Mann of NASA and Koichi Wakata of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) are conducting a spacewalk on Thursday, Feb. 2, to continue preparations for the installation of new roll-out solar arrays, or iROSAs, outside the station later this summer. The new arrays will increase the orbiting laboratory's power capacity.

The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 8:15 a.m. EST (1315 UTC) and last about six and a half hours. This is the second spacewalk for both Mann and Wakata.
