Space Station Live: Countdown to Spacewalk
Space Station Live

NASA Public Affairs Officer Brandi Dean talks with International Space Station Operations Integration Manager Kenny Todd about the upcoming series of spacewalks to be conducted by U.S. astronauts Barry Wilmore and Terry Virts.
Todd explains the reasoning behind the postponement of the first two spacewalks by one day–to Feb. 21 and Feb. 25–which will begin the preparations for installation later this year of two International Docking Adapters which will permit future commercial crew vehicles to dock to the station.

Watch the spacewalk live on SpaceRef starting at 6:00 a.m. EST.
