A user asked if he felt any difference in temperature inside his space suit? To this, the official Twitter handle of ISS replied, “Spacewalking astronauts see a sunrise and sunset every 90 minutes. Also, you will be shocked to hear what he disclosed on the difference in temperature.
NASA experts said that the International Space Station orbits the Earth every 90 minutes. Due to which they see a sunset every 45 minutes and a sunrise within the next 45 minutes. That is, every 90 minutes they see a sunrise and a sunset. Apart from this, it was also told that during this there is a huge change in temperature.
The temperature at sunset is -250 degrees Fahrenheit and at sunrise it is 250 degrees Fahrenheit. NASA experts said that this type of fabric is used in space suits, due to which this changing temperature does not affect them much.
Akhikho Hoshide and Thomas Pesquest were on the outside of the spaceship to install a support bracket so that the third solar array could be attached to the space station in the future. Both the astronauts completed their mission successfully. This was the 12th spacewalk to be held within this year.
NASA has also opened the International Spacestation for commercial use this year, so energy consumption has also increased there. So the team is working on upgrading 6 channels out of 8 available there so that adequate power supply can be available in the coming time.
