STS-127: EVA #5 (NASA) Two astronauts quickly completed their tasks outside the International Space Station during the final spacewalk of the STS-127 mission Monday. Tom Marshburn and Chris Cassidy spent four hours and 54 minutes outside the station Monday, about 90 minutes less than planned. The spacewalk wrapped up early after the astronauts completed all their tasks ahead of schedule, outfitting the exterior of the Japanese Exposed Facility with video cameras and various other miscellaneous tasks. With its work at the station complete, Endeavour is scheduled to undock from the station at about 1:30pm EDT (1730 GMT) Thursday. Endeavour is scheduled to return to Earth on Friday.
