On Saturday, January 25, 2020, two astronauts will perform the last of this month’s three International Space Station (ISS) spacewalks, to finish the repair of a cosmic ray detector. NASA TV’s live coverage of the spacewalk will begin on Saturday at 10:30 UTC (5:30 a.m. ET). Translate UTC to your time.

NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan and Luca Parmitano of ESA will finalize thermal repairs on the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer’s cooling apparatus. Work on the apparatus began in November and December 2019. Morgan and Parmitano will verify that it’s ready for use.

Watch on NASA TV.

You can also follow the spacewalk @NASA on Twitter, or watch it on NASA’s Facebook page.

On January 20, NASA astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch performed a spacewalk to finish work they started during the month’s first spacewalk on January 15, to upgrade power systems on the station’s Port-6 truss structure.

A few 2020 lunar calendars are still available. Order yours before they’re gone. Makes a great gift!

Bottom line: On January 25, watch the last of three ISS spacewalks scheduled in January 2020.
