The pair of spacemen, Vinogradov and Romanenko, only just struck it out into the void, and over the course of the six-hour jaunt, the duo will install the new Nauka Multipurpose Laboratory Module onto the ISS. It's a task that requires enough finesse that it can't be done solely by remote control.


In addition to wide shots from ISS-mounted cameras, the cosmonauts also have some helmet mounted gear, so you'll be treated to the occasional first-person shot of a workday in orbit. Granted, the full six hours is unlikely to be gripping, but it's worth a little peek now and then. Who knows what kind of stunning vista you might be able to catch. [NASA TV]
