Spacewalkers to jettison gear, collect samples

Expedition 41 commander Max Suraev and flight engineer Alexander Samokutyaev of the Roscosmos will don Orlan spacesuits and exit the International Space Station's Pirs airlock on Wednesday (Oct. 22) for a planned six-hour spacewalk set to begin at 8:24 a.m. CDT (1324 GMT).

The spacewalkers will work outside the station's Russian segment to jettison science and communications gear no longer being used. They will also remove a protective cover from a biological exposure experiment, collect samples of particulate matter on the Pirs docking compartment and photograph the station's Russian exterior.
