ISS spacewalk by Onufrienko and Walz (NASA) Two members of the International Space Station's Expedition Four crew successfully completed a spacewalk outside the station Monday. Cosmonaut Yuri Onufrienko and astronaut Carl Walz completed the main task of the six-hour spacewalk, the installation of a second Strela cargo crane on the Pirs docking module. Onufrienko and Walz moved the crane from a stowage location outside the station to Pirs, where it joins another Strela crane installed in November. The two cranes will allow station crews to move modules from the far end of the Zvezda service module to the opposite end of the Zarya cargo module, where it meets the US segment of the station. The spacewalkers also installed a ham radio antenna to the exterior of Zvezda. The third member of the Expedition Four crew, Dan Bursch, monitored the spacewalk from within the station. Onufrienko and Bursch will conduct another spacewalk January 25 to install three more ham radio antennae and perform several other tasks.
