Astronauts grease robot arm's latch

NASA astronauts begin the second of three spacewalks to repair ISS

On Tuesday, NASA astronauts #Randy Bresnik and Mark Vande Hei ventured out of the International Space Station (ISS) to install a new high-definition (HD) video camera outside the orbiting post. NASA astronaut Joe Acaba and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli will help the spacewalkers get suited up and out the door. Expedition 53 Commander Randy Bresnik of NASA and Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei of NASA successfully carried out the 2nd spacewalk for the ISS fix. "I have a little bit of adrenaline going on right now", Mr. Vande Hei said as he got to work more than 400 km above Rio de Janeiro.

SpaceX launches satellites from Vandenberg, completes landing
This was the third successful launch by the Hawthorne-based company using an already flown 16-story-tall booster. The same booster first flew on a February mission to the International Space Station with a Dragon capsule.

Using a type of grease gun known as the ballscrew lubrication tool, or BLT, Vande Hei will then squirt grease into the new LEE that he and Bresnik swapped out during their previous spacewalk. Actually, the latches, or hands, are located on each end of the Canadian-built robot arm, and they are used to grab the arriving USA cargo ships and also enable the robot arm to move around the orbiting lab. On October 5, the duo had replaced the latching mechanism on one end of the Canadian-made robotic arm, called Canadarm2. NASA spokesman Rob Navias described the camera equipment as offering "new eyes" to the orbiting outpost. The camera that was replaced on Tuesday was adding pink hue in the images, thus degrading the quality of the images. The job is expected to spill into next week, in a third spacewalk.
