This Morning A Canadian Will Perform A Spacewalk Outside The International Space Station

It’s a big day for Canada! Just after 9am, Quebec astronaut David Saint-Jacques will become the first Canadian to perform a spacewalk in 12 years when he embarks on a planned seven-hour trip outside the International Space Station. The mission involves several tasks, including relocating a battery adaptor plate, upgrading the station’s wireless communication system and connecting jumper cables along the midpoint of the station’s main truss to give Canadarm2 an alternative power source. Saint-Jacques will be supported by Canadian Space Agency robotics flight controllers.
