Posted: Fri, Nov 29, 2002, 10:19 AM ET (1519 GMT)
STS-113: EVA #2 (NASA) Two astronauts successfully completed the second of three spacewalks scheduled for the STS-113 shuttle mission on Thursday. John Herrington and Michael Lopez-Alegria spent six hours and ten minutes outside the station Thursday carrying out a variety of tasks on the new P1 truss segment installed Tuesday. During the EVA the astronauts connected fluid lines, removed launch supports, and installed a second wireless video antenna. They also reconnected cables for the first wireless video antenna, installed Tuesday, and moved the truss's handcart to the starboard truss segment. A third spacewalk by Harrington and Lopez-Alegria, to complete a number of minor tasks outside the station, is scheduled for Saturday. Thursday was the 11th time that a US manned mission was in progress during the Thanksgiving Day holiday, although it was the first Thanksgiving Day spacewalk.
