(28 April 2013) --- This high-angle view in the Quest airlock aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station portends a spacewalk for the Expedition 36 crew later in the year. Two extravehicular mobility units (EMU) stand ready for the event. U.S. and Italian flags on the shoulders of the suits signal that the participating astronauts would be representing NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). Actually, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, now serving as a member of the Expedition 35 crew; and Luca Parmitano of ESA, who is currently still on Earth getting ready for a May launch, are scheduled for two spacewalks together in the summer of this year.
