Two NASA astronauts have taken a leap outside the International Space Station and begun a walk to install a brand new loading bay for future visiting space crafts.
The walk lasted for 6 hours and 32 minutes and astronauts Nick Hague and Andrew Morgan worked together to install the International Docking Adapter-3 (IDA-3) to the space facing side of the station. This successful installation will serve as a literal parking spot for future NASA, SpaceX and Boeing spacecrafts.
This marked the first time Morgan has ventured out into the infinite abyss via a spacewalk, and according to Mike Barratt, spacecraft communicator in Mission Control, "Welcome to the club, you did a brilliant job." The ISS crew aboard is currently doing experiments and stem cell differentiation in a zero gravity environment. With this hopeful new found knowledge, NASA, SpaceX and Boeing believe this information will be able to assist the human-race level push to land on Mars.
