LU 5DFO saw again the ISS over La Plata city, after sunset Thu 2011 - 08 - 04, from 22.22 to 22.25 ours UTC, 31 degree elevation, altitude 400 Km, speed 7670 m/s, minimum distance 776 Km, mag -2.5, not signal packet, with clear sky.
How long will the ARISSat-1 satellite be close to the ISS. Will the pass times always be the same ?
Heard female voice with deep fading. Not a high pass, so it was difficult copy. I'll try for the secret word on the next pass, which should be higher!
Flight Engineers Sergei Volkov and Alexander Samokutyaev closed the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment ending their spacewalk Wednesday at 5:13 p.m. EDT. The duo were wearing Russian Orlan spacesuits and worked outside the Russian segment of the International Space Station.
Volkov and Samokutyaev worked for six hours and 23 minutes performing a variety of tasks for both science and maintenance.
