ISS EVA on 2010 July 27 (NASA) Two Russian cosmonauts completed an EVA outside the International Space Station early Tuesday. Fyodor Yurchikhin and Mikhail Kornienko completed the six-hour, 42-minute spacewalk at 6:53 am EDT (1053 GMT), using the Pirs docking module as the airlock for the EVA. The two set up a Kurs automated rendezvous system on the station's new Rassvet module and also replaced an old television camera on the aft end of the Zvezda module, jettisoning the old camera into space. During the EVA two small objects floated away from the station; one of the objects was later identified as a cable clamp left behind from an earlier spacewalk.
