Two NASA astronauts ventured outside the International Space Station (ISS) to replace a failed power module during a spacewalk on Wednesday.

American astronauts Reid Wiseman and Barry Willmore left the inside of the ISS at around 12pm GMT, with the mission expected to last around six hours.

The operation includes removing and replacing a power regulator on the station’s starboard truss which failed in mid-May, and the moving of filming equipment in preparation for the relocation of the Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module to facilitate the accommodation of new docking adapters for future commercial crew vehicles.
