Two components of the Russian side of the International Space Station have come a step closer to robotic relocation after two cosmonauts spacewalked to prepare parts for their relocation.

Expedition 68 commander Sergey Prokopyev and flight engineer Dmitry Petelin, both from the Russian federal space company Roskosmos, conducted a six-hour, 25-minute EVA (extravehicular activity) on Thursday (November 17) to install an airlock and cooler for to prepare the transfer from one airlock Russian module to another. The hardware was launched on the station aboard a NASA space shuttle 12 years ago and is now being repositioned to support a newer module.
