International Space Station
---------------------------

Expedition 66 continues.

On Jan 19 astronauts Shkaplerov and Dubrov made a spacewalk from the Poisk airlock
to work on outfitting the new Prichal module. The airlock wsa
depressurized around 1150 UTC and the hatch was open at 1218 UTC. Dubrov, in suit
Orlan MKS4, and Shkaplerov - in suit MKS5 - emerged at 1225 and 1236 UTC,
and used the Strela crane to reach the Nauka module, then crawled down
to Prichal. They installed handrails, cables and two antennas. They
relocated a TV camera, and installed two docking targets.
At 1729 UTC Jan 19 the astronauts jettisoned the docking target cover;
at 1810 and 1811 UTC two antenna covers were jettisoned; and at 1905 and
1906 UTC two cleaning towels were thrown into space after the astronauts
wiped themselves down to avoid bringing any thruster contamination into
the airlock. At 1910 and 1915 UTC respectively Shkaplerov and Dubrov
went back inside the airlock, with hatch closure at 1929 UTC and
repressurization beginning at 1932 UTC.


Starlink
---------

49 more Starlinks (Group 4-6) were launched to the Group 4 shell on Jan
19. The Falcon 9 first stage landed on the droneship A Shortfall Of
Gravitas.

Errata
------

Transporter 3 details: Three, not four, Unicorn-2 imaging sats (2A,2D,2E); and aboard ION-SCV I missed
the SW1FT cubesat from SatRevolution.
