Astronauts finish second spacewalk
Posted: Sun, Aug 19, 2001, 9:47 AM ET (1347 GMT)
STS-105 EVA #1 (NASA) Two shuttle astronauts completed the second of two spacewalks outside the International Space Station Saturday. Astronauts Pat Forrester and Dan Berry worked outside ISS for five and a half hours, installing backup heater cables that will be used for a truss assembly that will be added to the station next year. The shuttle and station crews are wrapping up Discovery's visit to the station: Sunday the shuttle's robot arm will detach the Leonardo cargo module from the station and install it in the shuttle's cargo bay for return to Earth. Discovery is scheduled to undock from the station Monday morning at 10:52 am EDT (1452 GMT) and return to Earth two days later.
