Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams
completed their spacewalk Sunday at 3:49 p.m. EST. This was the second
of an unprecedented series of three spacewalks in nine days. Some of the
tasks planned for this excursion were similar to those of the first
spacewalk on Wednesday. They reconfigured the second of two cooling
loops for the Destiny module, secured the aft radiator of the P6 truss
after retraction and prepared the obsolete Early Ammonia Servicer for
removal this summer.
At the conclusion of the third spacewalk from the Quest airlock on Feb.
8 and a Russian spacewalk planned for Feb. 22, Lopez-Alegria will have
completed his 10th spacewalk, an astronaut record. Williams will have a
total of four, the most ever by a woman.
