Expedition 50 astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet will head outside the International Space Station today to continue battery replacement work.

The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 7:05 a.m. EST (1205 GMT). Live NASA Television coverage and commentary starts at 5:30 a.m.

Kimbrough and NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson started that work last Friday during a six-hour, 32-minute spacewalk. Today’s EVA will complete the power system work by connecting new lithium-ion batteries and installing adapter plates.
