    Expedition 48 Commander Jeff Williams and Flight Engineer Kate Rubins of NASA will conduct the spacewalk to install equipment that arrived at the station last month (July 20, 2016).This will be the fourth spacewalk in Williams’ career, and the first for Rubins.

    The astronauts will be working on installing and connecting the first of two international docking adapters (IDAs) that will be used for the future arrivals of Boeing and SpaceX commercial crew spacecraft.
