STS-114: EVA 1 (NASA) Two members of the STS-114 crew conducted a spacewalk outside the space shuttle Discovery Saturday, testing shuttle tile repair techniques and performing work on the International Space Station. Soichi Noguchi and Steve Robinson spent six hours and 50 minutes outside the shuttle on an EVA that started at 5:36 am EDT (0936 GMT) Saturday. The two started their spacewalk in the shuttle's cargo bay, testing methods of repairing shuttle tiles on-orbit. The two then performed a series of tasks on the exterior of the station, including replacing an antenna and swapping out power connectors for one of the station's gyros. The EVA went smoothly and the two were able to perform some additional tasks not originally planned for the spacewalk. The EVA is the first of three planned for the STS-114 mission; the second will take place Monday and the third on Wednesday.
