(NASA/CNN) - Two Russian cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station ventured outside the orbiting outpost Monday for a spacewalk for assembly and maintenance.

During the six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk, the pair will launch a small satellite and install and retrieve science experiments.

According to NASA, this is the second spacewalk for both cosmonauts.
