Two astronauts, ISS Expedition 10 commander Leroy Chiao and flight engineer Salizhan Sharipov, are currently living aboard the International Space Station (ISS). They are gearing up for the final spacewalk of their six-month mission. The reason for their spacewalk is simple: install a batch of antennas and hand-toss a small satellite into space.

Two astronauts living aboard the International Space Station (ISS) are gearing up for the final spacewalk of their six-month mission.

With just over one month left in their spaceflight, ISS Expedition 10 commander Leroy Chiao and flight engineer Salizhan Sharipov plan to step outside the station on March 28 to install a batch of antennas and hand-toss a small satellite into space.

“Their attitude continues to be super and they are certainly looking forward to this spacewalk,” said Derek Hassman, NASA’s Expedition 10 lead spacewalk director, of the ISS crew during a mission briefing Friday at Johnson Space Center.

Living on a space station must be completely amazing. I really want to go to Mars but if this fails, I want to at least get into space and experience the feeling it all. An amazing fact about this spacewalk is that the ISS will be unmanned while these two men are in space.

Chiao and Sharipov have spent 155 days living in space and are due to return to Earth on April 25.
