Spacewalk Turns Into Lengthy Stroll, Ends Successfully

By | June 5, 2006

      A spacewalk from the International Space Station took about an hour longer than expected, but ended in success.

      The walk began a few minutes after the 6:40 p.m. ET Thursday scheduled time, as commander Pavel Vinogradov and flight engineer Jeff Williams exited the International Space Station airlock.

      During the walk, various tasks were checked off a to-do list, including repositioning a cable, and replacing a camera, the final chore that required the extended spacewalk time.
