In this view of the right side of the International Space Station, you can see the batteries that the spacewalkers switched out beneath the solar arrays
Peggy Whitson and Oleg Navitskiy assist as Pesquet returns from his spacewalk.
Last Glove Check
Peggy Whitson takes photos of the spacewalkers' gloves, which will later be closely examined by the ground team to check for damages incurred during the spacewalk.
Installing New Lithium-Ion Batteries
This diagram shows how the new lithium-ion batteries and adapter plates are configured with the old nickel-hydrogen batteries.
Before & After
This diagram shows the configuration of batteries and adapter plates before and after the spacewalk. Adapter plates were removed from the HTV-6 cargo craft and installed at the station's integrated electronics assembly (IEA) to complete the replacement of nickel-hydrogen batteries with lithium-ion batteries.
NASA's mission control in Houston monitored the spacewalk while helping to guide the astronauts through all their tasks.
