The greater support for commercial vehicles will be a big step forward for the International Space Station - giving thee vessels an easier time docking and the ability to more easily deliver both passengers as well as supplies and experiments.

A pair of NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station are embarking on a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk today to upgrade and fix the orbiting outpost.

This is the 210th spacewalk at the ISS since 1998.

NASA astronaut Drew Feustel seemingly hangs off the International Space Station while conducting a spacewalk with fellow NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold (out of frame) on March 29, 2018. It is Fuestel's eighth spacewalk and Arnold's fourth.

But what we do know is the trade greatly changed the trajectory for both franchises. "It was a team effort", Morris said. He also recorded seven turnovers to nine assists , and the Cavs were down by more than 20 points for much of the game .

While out in space, the astronauts are expected to conduct a number of improvements and upgrades to hardware and technology on the station.

The PFCS is created to drive and control the flow of ammonia through the exterior portions of the station's cooling system. Robotics controllers on Earth will use Canadarm2 and Dextre to perform final installation on the port-side truss.

The cameras will also play double duty in transmitting and receiving data from experiments and assemblies in Europe's Columbus laboratory and Japan's Kibo laboratory. The video, which was originally streamed live on May 16 on NASA's official Twitch account, has gone viral across the Internet.
