2 astronauts put Up parking area in space

Two US astronauts completed the fifth spacewalk of this year out of the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday, installing a “parking lot” for future commercial crew spacecraft. Nick Hague and Andrew Morgan wrapped up their spacewalk at 2:59 p.m Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), lasting about six hours and 32 minutes, according to the US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration. They successfully installed the second of two international docking adapters that will be used for the future arrivals of Boeing CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon commercial crew spacecraft.
