ISS EVA on 2015 November 6 (NASA) Two NASA astronauts spent nearly eight hours outside the International Space Station Friday, successfully reconfiguring the cooling system on part of the station's truss. Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren completed their 7-hour, 48-minute EVA outside the station at 2:10 pm EST (1910 GMT). The two spent most of their time working on the cooling system for the P6 truss segment, returning it to its normal configuration after earlier repairs. The two also made minor repairs to other elements of the station while on their spacewalk. The two ran out of time to complete one task, retracting and stowing a backup radiator, electing to keep the radiator extended.
