FABRIC SHIELD (ISS DEB) is a piece of fabric shield lost in space from ISS during a EVA on Mar 30, 2017. NASA astronauts on a spacewalk accidentally lost a fabric shield needed for the International Space Station. Astronauts Peggy Whitson and Shane Kimbrough were working on an area of the space station where a docking port had been disconnected and moved a week before this event. They were in the process of using four large cloth panels to cover the access point where the docking port had been when one of the fabric shields suddenly drifted away and floated off into space.
