Spacewalkers complete final STS-128 EVA

STS-128: EVA #3 (NASA) Two astronauts completed nearly all of their planned tasks outside the International Space Station during their third and final spacewalk of the STS-128 mission on Saturday evening. Danny Olivas and Christer Fuglesang spent seven hours and one minute outside the station during the spacewalk, which ended at 11:40 pm. The two installed GPS antennas and a rate gyro assembly, among other work. One task the two were not able to complete is the connection of two avionics cables that will eventually be linked to the Tranquility module, because one of the connectors would not mate. That work was deferred to a later mission.
