Duration Crew & Remarks
24 Jun 2013 UT 6h 34m Misurkin and F.Yurchikhin; mission ISS
They replaced a fluid flow regulator on the Russian segment’s Zarya module. They also removed the Photon-Gamma unit of the Molina-Gamma experiment, which measures gamma splashes and optical radiation during terrestrial lightning and thunder conditions, from a portable workstation on Zvezda.
16 Aug 2013 UT 7h 29m Misurkin and F.Yurchikhin; mission ISS
They continued routing power and Ethernet cables for the future arrival of the Russian Multipurpose Laboratory Module, which will be launched aboard a Proton rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. They also installed on the Poisk module a panel of experiments designed to collect data on the effects of the microgravity environment in low-Earth orbit.
22 Aug 2013 UT 5h 58m Misurkin and F.Yurchikhin; mission ISS
The cosmonauts removed a space laser communications system from the hull of the Zvezda service module and planned to install a pointing platform on which a small optical telescope will be installed on a future Russian spacewalk. This task failed.
02 Feb 2018 UT 8h 13m Misurkin and A. Shkaplerov; mission ISS-Exp.54
The primary objectives during the spacewalk were to remove and jettison the ShA-317A-II radio receiver for the "Lira" high-gain communications antenna on the Zvezda service module and install an upgraded electronics box to communication between Russian flight controllers and the Russian modules of the orbital outpost. Next they retrieved the experiments "Biorisk" and "Test" from the module Pirs. The cosmonauts also took detailed photos of the exterior of the Russian modules, especially a material experiment container.
