epa04636092 A handout picture made available by NASA on 25 February 2015 shows US NASA astronaut Barry Wilmore operating outside the International Space Station (ISS) on the first of three spacewalks preparing the station for future arrivals by US commercial crew spacecraft, in space, 21 February 2015. US spacewalker Terry Virts is seen reflected in Wilmore's visor. The spacewalks are designed to lay cables along the forward end of the US segment to bring power and communication to two International Docking Adapters slated to arrive later this year. The new docking ports will welcome US commercial spacecraft launching from Florida, USA, beginning in 2017, permitting the standard station crew size to grow from six to seven and potentially double the amount of crew time devoted to research. The second and third spacewalks are planned for 25 February 2015 and 01 March 2015, with Wilmore and Virts participating in all three. EPA/NASA HANDOUT EDITORIAL USE ONLY

An evening with Astronaut Scott Kelly presented by the Linda Hall Library Foundation and made possible through a generous gift from Mike and Millie Brown.
