STS-130: cupola after EVA#3 (NASA) Spacewalkers removed covers and unlocked shutters that allowed astronauts on the International Space Station to open its new cupola for the first time early Wednesday. Robert Behnken and Nicholas Patrick spent five hours and 48 minutes outside the ISS on an EVA that ended at 3:03 am EST (0803 GMT), performing work on the cupola that allowed astronauts inside to open shutters and enjoy the view from its large windows for the first time. The spacewalkers also activated a second ammonia coolant line for the new Tranquility module and performed other work on the station's exterior.
