TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Two astronauts were on a spacewalk on the International Space Station on a mission to improve the station’s power, according to NASA.

The astronauts are expected to spend six and a half hours in the vacuum of space to improve the station’s power system. NASA said the walkers will be building a bracket to support future plans to install six new solar arrays on the station, upgrading one of its eight power channels.
