ISS005-E-09719 (14 August 2002) --- Astronaut Peggy A. Whitson, Expedition Five flight engineer, photographed in her thermal undergarment prior to donning a Russian Orlan spacesuit, prepares for an upcoming session of extravehicular activity (EVA) from the Pirs docking compartment on the International Space Station (ISS). The spacewalk is scheduled for August 16, 2002, which will be the 42nd spacewalk at the station and the 17th based out of the station. Whitson and cosmonaut Valery G. Korzun, mission commander, will install six debris panels on the Zvezda Service Module. The panels are designed to shield Zvezda from potential space debris impacts.
