ISS: NASA spacewalkers install docking adapter on International Station

NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Andrew Morgan left the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday on a planned 6.5 hour-long spacewalk to install an International Docking Adapter-3 (IDA-3).

Footage shows both astronauts outside the ISS working on the installation while in contact with NASA's control centre.

The IDA-3 will serve as a second docking port to copulate Crew Dragon and Starliner ships in the future.

This is Hague's third spacewalk and Morgan's first time. It is the fifth time astronauts leave the ISS for a spacewalk in 2019.
