Chinese astronauts perform spacewalk
Posted: Fri, Jul 9, 2021, 6:59 PM ET (2259 GMT)
Chinese astronauts performed the first spacewalk outside their new space station Saturday night. Liu Boming and Tang Hongbo spent about six and a half hours outside the Tianhe core module of the station, installing foot restraints and a platform on the module's robotic arm. The spacewalk was only the second in the history of the Chinese space program, after a brief spacewalk during the Shenzhou-7 mission in 2008. The astronauts are expected to conduct a second spacewalk later in their three-month mission.
