Astronauts Pesquet, Kimbrough tackle ISS solar panel work in new spacewalk

Description

French astronaut Thomas Pesquet and his American colleague Shane Kimbrough completed a six-hour spacewalk Sunday as they installed new solar panels to boost power supplies to the International Space Station (ISS), NASA said. The astronauts started Sunday’s spacewalk picking up where they left off Wednesday, when a string of problems prevented them from unrolling the high-tech solar panel.
