Description

ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet on the International Space Station with the spacesuits he and commander Shane Kimbrough will wear during their January spacewalk.

Thomas commented: “We have started well in advance to prepare for the spacewalks of January. It is a lot of work to service the suits and get them ready, get familiar with the choreography and prepare the tools and equipment. Not even mentioning the thousands of hours of work for all the personnel on the ground.”
