On Friday, two astronauts will “walk” outside of the International Space Station in order to install what NASA has called a new “parking spot” on the space lab. And of course, this is NASA, so you can watch the whole thing live:
NASA’s Jeff Williams and Kate Rubins will be installing a new docking mechanism. The system called “The International Docking Adaptor,” is going to allow commercial spacecraft carrying astronauts to come into port at the Space Station.
Like I mentioned, it’s basically a parking spot for other astronauts.
Watch Williams and Rubin make history up top.
