GordonD Posted October 1, 2020 Share Posted October 1, 2020 1 OCTOBER 1997 Scott Parazynski & Vladimir Titov (STS-86/Mir) Duration 5 hr 1 min This was the second EVA to be conducted from a Shuttle Orbiter while docked to Mir (the first had been by Godwin and Clifford eighteen months earlier) but the first to be carried out by US and Russian spacewalkers. Their main task was to attach a 55kg solar array cap to Mir's Docking Module, which would allow the station crew to seal off the damaged Spektr. With this achieved, the astronauts retrieved four space exposure packages; however, a further test of the SAFER jet pack was a failure due to a faulty valve. Parazynski's first EVA; Titov's fourth and last, giving him a total of 18 hr 48 min. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
