Two astronauts with the U.S. house company, NASA, left the Worldwide House Station (ISS) Thursday to conduct a spacewalk to interchange a damaged antenna system, two days after the stroll was postponed over issues about house particles.

NASA astronauts Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron stepped out of the ISS airlock early Thursday to interchange the defective antenna, used to speak voice and knowledge to floor management. The operation was anticipated to final six-and-a-half hours.

The spacewalk had initially been scheduled for Tuesday however was postponed late Monday after NASA stated it had acquired a notification of house particles that it wanted to evaluate. The house company stated as soon as it decided the particles didn’t pose a danger, the operation was rescheduled for Thursday.

It was not instantly clear whether or not the particles discipline that prompted the spacewalk to be postponed was associated to a Russian anti-satellite missile check two weeks in the past. That occasion created a particles discipline that compelled ISS crew members to hunt shelter of their escape capsules as a precaution.
