It is still not clear how this shield got away but in the meanwhile the astronauts were able to cover the gap in the docking port with a temporary cover. Flight controllers quickly determined it posed no threat of recontacting the station and after conferring on the ground, engineers suggested the astronauts make up for the lost panel by installing a thermal shield they had just removed from a docking port extension.
PMA-3 will provide the pressurized interface between the station and the second of two global docking adapters to be delivered to the complex to support the dockings of USA commercial crew spacecraft in the future. The shielding protects against micrometeorite debris. Peggy Whitson acheived a record of being the oldest spacewoman with the highest number of spacewalks .

NASA says it is not yet clear who let the shield go or how it floated away. Williams created the previous record with a spacewalk of total 50 hours and 40 minutes, which was surpassed by Whitson who logged 53 hours and 22 minutes. EVA-41, the second NASA spacewalk in one week. A Russian holds the all-time spacewalking record: Anatoly Solovyev with 16. She managed to accumulate more than 500 days lived in space which is more than any other woman has ever experienced.

Pruitt's ban will likely put off any pesticide ban until 2022, when the agency is formally mandated to re-evaluate chlorpyrifos. The EPA under Pruitt need only muster enough scientific evidence to show that its findings are also reasonable, a relatively low bar for an agency to get over.
American astronaut Peggy Whitson made history when she floated outside the International Space Station on Thursday, breaking the record for the most spacewalks by Indian-American astronaut Sunita Williams .
