List of cumulative spacewalk records

This is a list of cumulative spacewalk records for the 30 astronauts who have the most extra-vehicular activity (EVA) time.[1][2] The record is currently held by Anatoly Solovyev of the Russian Federal Space Agency, with 82:22 hours from 16 EVAs, followed by NASA's Michael Lopez-Alegria with 67:40 hours in 10 EVAs. This list is current as of June 16, 2021.[3][1][4] The RSA designation includes spacewalks under the earlier Soviet space program.

NotesEdit

BehnkenA and CassidyB are the first to complete 10 spacewalks in NASA EMU suits. Whitson and López-Alegría used Russian Orlan Space Suits for some of their spacewalks: López-AlegríaC completed 2 and WhitsonD completed 1 spacewalk(s) with an Orlan Space Suit.[9][10][11]
