Curbeam during third STS-98 EVA Two astronauts completed the third and final EVA of shuttle mission STS-98 outside the International Space Station Wednesday. Astronauts Bob Curbeam and Tom Jones worked outside the shuttle for five hours and 25 minutes, wrapping up a variety of tasks, including the installation of a space communications antenna and deployment of a radiator. The two also practiced techniques for moving an immobile spacewalker back to the shuttle in the event of an emergency. Besides being the third spacewalk of the mission, the EVA was also the 100th in NASA's history. Shortly after the EVA ended hatches opened again between the shuttle and station and the crews of the two spacecraft continued work transferring supplies to the station. The shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to undock from ISS on Friday, one week after arriving to install the Destiny lab module to the orbiting facility.
