conducted their last full day of spacewalk preparations on Monday. They
participated a full dress-rehearsal in the Russian Orlan spacesuits, which

for Wednesday’s spacewalk.

Chiao and Sharipov are scheduled to begin the 5.5-hour excursion at 1:25
a.m. CST (0725 GMT) Wednesday. Their tasks include installing a work
platform and experiments on the outside of the Station.
