Two American astronauts successfully replaced ageing batteries on ISS

26 March 2019 Current Affairs:

NASA’s Anne McClain and Nick Hague took a spacewalk on 22nd March to replace ageing batteries on the International Space Station. Two American astronauts worked for several hours to swap three nickel-hydrogen batteries with more powerful lithium-ion ones.
