Spacewalkers configure new space station robotic arm on rare Russian-European EVA

A Russian cosmonaut and an Italian astronaut worked together outside of the International Space Station Thursday (July 21), marking the first time in almost a quarter century that a European participated in a Russian-operated spacewalk.

Expedition 67 crewmates Oleg Artemyev of Russia’s federal space corporation Roscosmos and Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency (ESA) spent 7 hours and 5 minutes further configuring a new robotic arm for the Russian segment of the space station, and hand deploying a series of small satellites.
