Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, Expedition 36 flight engineer installed clamps for future power cables as an early step toward swapping the Pirs airlock with a new multipurpose laboratory module. The Russian Federal Space Agency plans to launch a combination research facility, airlock and docking port late this year on a Proton rocket. Yurchikhin and Misurkin also retrieved two science experiments and installed a new one. This image was released June 24, 2013.
