This NASA TV frame grab shows a pair of United States astronauts as they began a spacewalk outside the International Space Station on May 16, 2018 to swap and check on two external cooling boxes, nicknamed "Leaky" and "Frosty".

NASA is providing live coverage of the exciting process, which began around 8:10 a.m. on May 16.

A pair of NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station are embarking on a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk today to upgrade and fix the orbiting outpost.

"The goal of the pump flow control subassembly is all about the cooling batteries that the space station holds its electrical power in", explained Anthony Vareha, a flight director at NASA.

A subsequent joint press conference with Peters - who is also Foreign Minister - confirmed the arrangement. Ardern: "This is a letter that simply sets out our usual operational day-to-day way of working anyway".

A brand new spare pump arrived at the space station last month.

According to Jordan Lindsay, the lead officer for today's spacewalk, in a briefing on May 8th, "We have a camera R&R [rest and recuperation] plan as well as a comm box...that will be part of the EVA as well". It is Fuestel's eighth spacewalk and Arnold's fourth.

Overall, this is the 210th spacewalk in support of station assembly, maintenance and upgrades.

Feustel and Arnold also have a history working together, making this the second NASA space walk livestream the second trek the two have taken together - with the first back on March 29th. The primary objectives are to finish upgrading cooling system hardware and install new and updated communications equipment for future dockings of commercial crew spacecraft.
