Spacewalkers Complete Work Outside Station

ISS News

Mission Specialists Mike Fossum and Ron Garan completed the third STS-124 spacewalk at 4:28 p.m. EDT Sunday. Their excursion lasted six hours and 33 minutes.

Fossum and Garan accomplished all planned activities and several "get-ahead" tasks. They exchanged a depleted nitrogen tank assembly for a new one, removed thermal covers and launch locks from the Kibo laboratory, and reinstalled a repaired television camera. Fossum also retrieved samples of a dust-like substance from the left solar alpha rotary joint for analysis by experts on the ground.

The spacewalk was Fossum's sixth, Garan's third, the 112th spacewalk devoted to space station assembly and maintenance, and the 197th by U.S. astronauts.
