ISS EVA on 2010 Jan 21 (NASA) Two Russian astronauts performed a spacewalk outside the International Space Station, successfully completing a number of tasks. Dmitry Kondratyev and Oleg Skripochka started their five-hour, 23-minute spacewalk at 9:29 am EST (1429 GMT) Friday from the Pirs airlock module. The two carried out a series of miscellaneous tasks, including the installation of a high-speed data transmission antenna on the Russian segment of the station, the retrieval of experiments on the exterior of the Zvezda module, and the installation of a TV camera on the Rassvet module to support dockings by Progress and Soyuz spacecraft there. The two cosmonauts are scheduled to perform another spacewalk on February 16 to install new scientific instruments on the station's exterior as well as deploy a small amateur radio satellite.
