The International Space Station is getting a new docking adapter.

Astronauts worked to install a port for Boeing and SpaceX commercial crewships during a spacewalk Wednesday that started at 8:27 a.m. PT, CBS News reported. The spacewalk is supposed to take about 6 and a half hours to complete.

This spacewalk is the third for astronaut Nick Hague and the the first for Drew Morgan.

The docking adapter will reportedly cost $22.5 million.
