Okay--which small satellite is going to be released? I've lost track...
from www.nasa.gov :
"International Space Station Expedition 32 Commander Gennady Padalka
and Flight Engineer Yuri Malenchenko of the Russian Federal Space
Agency have begun a planned 6 1/2-hour spacewalk.
The pair will move the Strela-2 hand-operated crane from the Pirs
docking compartment to the Zarya module, preparing Pirs for its
replacement with a new laboratory and docking module. They will also
deploy a small satellite and install debris shields on the Zvezda
