Astronauts Parmitano and Morgan perform spacewalks to repair ISS spectrometer

International Space Station, International Space Center

European Space Agency (ESA) Astronaut Luca Parmitano and NASA Astronaut Andrew Morgan perform spacewalks to repair the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) on the International Space Station (ISS), on Friday, November 15.

Parmitano and Morgan are expected to install a new coolant system on the AMS, after three of the four coolant pumps reportedly failed. The spacewalk is expected to last at least 6 hours.

The AMS, mounted on the ISS in 2011, is a particle-physics detector that measures cosmic rays and looks for antimatter and dark matter. Since its installation on the ISS, the AMS has reportedly detected more than 145 billion cosmic ray particles, offering data into potential antimatter and dark matter.
