Space-ring spectators pushed through battery hookups outside the International Space Station on Friday Friday in a major solar powered gilt upgrade.
Christina Koch at NASA and Nick Hague managed to win a set of new and stronger batteries, following new work started a week ago.
The NASA team had not expected it. Koch was supposed to go out with astronaut Anne McClain for her first female flame. However the line was changed as there were no two middle lines for the women. Following NASA's acceptance of the change, McClain explained that the decision was based on praise.

“Team safety and mission implementation will come forward,” said McClain, an army airman, on Twitter this week.[Koch was selected as an astronaut by NASA in 2013. She completed astronaut candidate training in July 2015. Koch, a native of Michigan, graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Physics and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering.]
Koch – the 14th woman who was traveling by rail – arrived at the space station a fortnight with the Hague. McClain, who later became the 13th female passenger last week, has been on board since December. Over 200 people have walked in a room.
The former lithium-ion batteries replace the old-style nickel-hydrogen batteries at the space station. These batteries store energy that the sun wings collect and hold out as it is on the night side. The giant robot arm at the space station noticed the heavy lifting in advance, removing the old batteries and turning the new ones into the empty spaces earlier this week.
As well as installing three new batteries, Koch and Hague linked one of the three who submitted last week due to higher than expected voltage. Two traditional style batteries will be put in place until they arrive. By running all the time, the astronauts even pressed in some extra collaborations before the spacebar finished; They get 6 ½ hours.
“We are all very happy with the results that we have put out today,” said Mission Control radio. “You are pulling rock. ”

McClain withdrew from the range on Friday when she realized that the central suit she used last week was as well answered as she was; she was supposed to go to a big house. Koch is also walking. Although there is another spacepiece-top surface available, it would have had 12 hours to complete before time. NASA did not want to spend all the other station activities.
“It is safer and faster to change spacewalker specifications than to rebalance space devices,” NASA explained via Twitter.
The first field sheets, McClain, Koch and Hague are members of the NASA Astronaut class in 2013, the first number to include the same number of women and men.
A third phase is due to be completed in April 8; McClain will be joined with David Saint-Jacques from Canada.
The station consists of two Russian stations, 250 miles high.
