Spacewalk: Kedr Satellite to Be Launched Today
"BioRisk" containers

Today two Russian crewmembers of International space station will leave the station and work for the sake of science.

      Cosmonauts will launch a small satellite, called “Kedr” for Yuri Gagarin’s call sign during first ever manned spaceflight. This satellite, weighing 30 kilograms, will broadcast “Hello” in 25 languages, images of our planet and scientific information.

      Another scientific mission of ISS crewmembers is leaving “BioRisk” containers outside the station for studying effects of space radiation on some living creatures, like bacteria and mosquitoes. Hopefully, we won’t get any mutant mosquitoes back to our planet.
