Spacesuit problem hinders spacewalk
Posted: Fri, Jun 18, 2021, 5:28 PM ET (2128 GMT)
A spacesuit problem kept astronauts from completing all their tasks on a spacewalk outside the International Space Station Wednesday. NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough encountered a problem with a display unit on his spacesuit, which required him to go back to the airlock and reset the unit. That caused him and ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet to fall behind schedule on their work to deploy the first in a series of new solar arrays. They were able to install the panel, but ran out of time before they could deploy the array. The two are scheduled to perform a second spacewalk Sunday to complete the work and install a second panel.
