One of the tasks is to deploy several nanosatellites from a ladder outside the airlock. NASA says one of the satellites contains recorded greetings to the people of Earth in 11 languages. The cosmonauts will also collect residue samples, according to NASA, from various locations outside the Russian segment of the station and install handrails and struts to facilitate future excursions. This spacewalk marks the seventh this year.
