STS-127: EVA #4 (NASA) Two astronauts spent over seven hours outside the International Space Station on Friday replacing a set of batteries. Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn completed the 7-hour, 12-minute spacewalk at 5:06 pm EDT (2106 GMT). The two completed the replacement of a series of batteries on the P6 truss of the station, work that was started on the previous spacewalk but cut short because of rising carbon dioxide levels in Cassidy's suit. The fifth and final EVA of the STS-127 mission, also by Marshburn and Cassidy, is scheduled for Monday.
