All three extravehicular activities, or EVAs, will be based out of the station's Quest Airlock. Follow the link below for some additional information:

The first spacewalk of the Space Shuttle program occurred during STS-6 in April 1983. Astronauts Donald H. Peterson and F. Story Musgrave used new space suits designed specifically for the Space Shuttle as they performed various tests in the payload bay of Shuttle Challenger.
