Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov successfully 
completed a 5-hour, 25-minute spacewalk from the Pirs docking 
compartment airlock Wednesday, installing Service Module Debris 
Protection (SMDP) panels and rerouting a Global Positioning System 
antenna cable.

Wednesday's spacewalk, which began at 3:05 p.m. EDT, marks the first 
spacewalk for both Yurchikhin and Kotov.

Additional SMDP panels will be installed on Zvezda during a second 
spacewalk on June 6. During that spacewalk Yurchikhin and Kotov also 
will install a section of an Ethernet cable on the Zarya module and a 
Russian experiment called Biorisk on Pirs.
