ISS EVA on 2015 March 1 (NASA) Two NASA astronauts completed the last in a series of three spacewalks outside the International Space Station on Sunday to prepare the station for future commercial crew vehicles. Astronauts Terry Virts and Barry Wilmore completed a five-hour, 38-minute spacewalk Sunday at 12:30 pm EST (1730 GMT). The two completed the installation of cables outside the station and several communications antennas that will be used by future commercial crew vehicles under development by Boeing and SpaceX. The two astronauts spent 19 hours outside the station over the course of three spacewalks to prepare the station for commercial crew docking ports to be installed later this year. Virts, who reported a small amount of water in his suit helmet after his second EVA on Wednesday, said he noticed some in his helmet on this EVA, but less than earlier.
