ISS spacewalk by Exp. 11 (NASA) The two-man crew of the International Space Station performed a spacewalk outside the orbiting outpost Thursday night. Sergei Krikalev and John Phillips spent nearly five hours outside the ISS during the EVA, which started at 3:02 pm EDT (1902 GMT) Thursday. During the EVA the two spacewalkers removed a number of experiments mounted to the exterior of the station, including a torso-shaped container housing radiation exposure experiments. The spacewalkers also installed a TV camera on the Zvezda module. The spacewalk was wrapped up an hour early because one task, the removal of a grapple fixture on the Strela crane, was cancelled. The spacewalkers had fallen behind on their other tasks and ground controllers decided that Krikalev and Phillips would not have enough time to complete the Strela work.
