The fourth and final spacewalk of the Beyond mission, which we broadcast in live streaming with the European Space Agency (ESA) on the ANSA Science and Technology channel starting at 12.15.

The preparations for the spacewalk, which will last over six hours, began this morning at 8.00 Italian time and the exit of the two astronauts is scheduled for 12.50.

Once again the astronaut Luca Parmitano, from ESA and colleague Andrew Morgan, from NASA, will leave the Space Station to complete the installation of the new cooling pump of the antimatter hunter Ams (Alpha Magnetic Spectometer), the gigantic instrument installed outside the orbital station that sieves the cosmic rays in search of never seen particles.

Contrary to what happened in the first three outings, this time AstroLuca will not be the leader of the extra-vehicular activity: Morgan will drive, recognizable by the red bands on the sleeves and sweatpants. Like the other times, however, the new spacewalk will be acrobatic because Luca Parmitano will reach the Ams instrument thanks to the robotic arm of the orbital station, the Canadarm, to which it will be anchored only with the feet.
