 1  27.01.2021  M. Hopkins  6h 56m
This spacewalk focused on completing cable and antenna rigging for the "Bartolomeo" science payloads platform outside the ESA (European Space Agency) Columbus module. The duo also configured a Ka-band terminal, known as COL-Ka, that will enable an independent, high-bandwidth communication link to European ground stations. Bartolomeo is partially operational and in a safe configuration following the connection of four of six cables to the science platform, and the final two cables that could not be connected will be attended to on a future spacewalk. After completing the upgrades on the Columbus module, the astronauts removed a grapple fixture bracket on the far port (left) truss in preparation for future power system upgrades. Victor Glover also worked to replace a suspected broken pin inside the station's airlock as a "get ahead" task, but teams determined that a replacement pin was not needed after an inspection confirmed the current pin to be functioning properly.
 2  01.02.2021  M. Hopkins  5h 20m
This spacewalk addressed a variety of tasks, including installation of a final lithium-ion battery adapter plate on the port 4 (P4) truss that wrapped up battery replacement work begun in January 2017. They replaced an external camera on the starboard truss, installed a new high-definition camera on the Destiny laboratory, and replaced components for the Japanese robotic arm's camera system outside the Kibo module.
 3  28.02.2021  K. Rubins  7h 04m
They began assembling and installing modification kits required for upcoming solar array upgrades.
 4  13.03.2021  M. Hopkins  6h 47m
They vent and relocated ammonia jumper cables, installed a structural "stiffener" on the airlock thermal cover, and completed the connection of payload cables on the new Bartolomeo platform on the Columbus module. Other tasks included the replacement of a wireless communications antenna on the Unity module.
