Russian cosmonauts end spacewalk early after suit battery problem
Posted: Sun, Aug 21, 2022, 11:01 AM ET (1501 GMT)
Russian cosmonauts cut short a spacewalk outside the International Space Station Wednesday when one of them had a spacesuit battery problem. Oleg Artemyev was about two and a half hours into a spacewalk outside the Russian segment of the station when he reported a low voltage reading in his suit. Russian mission controllers ordered him to go back to the airlock immediately and reconnect to the station's power supply, which he did so without incident. The other spacewalking cosmonaut, Denis Matveev, also returned to the airlock a short time later. The two were part way through a planned six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk to continue setting up a European robotic arm on the station's Nauka module.
