[i]China will broadcast live the nation's maiden spacewalk slated for 04:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Wang Zhaoyao, spokesperson with the manned space program.
The spacewalk, or extra-vehicular activity (EVA), will last about 30 minutes, he said at a press conference here Friday.
Excluding the opening and the closing of the module gate, the real spacewalk may take about 20 minutes, he said.
According to the schedule, the taikonauts would finish testing the space suits at 1:00 a.m. Saturday when the Shenzhou 7 spacecraft has made 19 orbits around the earth, he said.
Then they would begin a 100-minute training in the orbital module before the EVA, he said.[/i]
