International Space Station Gets New Batteries Thanks To Two Daring Astronauts

Thanks to two NASA astronauts who took a seven-hour space-stroll Friday, the International Space Station has some new batteries.

According to Digital Trends, it was the first spacewalk for both of the astronauts, Nick Hague and Anne McClain.

The Expedition 59 crew members spent a total of six hours and 39 minutes on their mission.

They replaced the older nickel-hydrogen batteries used for the ISS’s power system.

The next spacewalk is scheduled for March 29, 2019.
