STS-129: EVA #2 (NASA) Two astronauts completed the second of three planned spacewalks of the STS-129 shuttle mission to the ISS on Saturday, again working ahead of schedule. Mike Foreman and Randy Bresnik completed the 6-hour, 8-minute spacewalk at 3:39 pm EST (2019 GMT) Saturday, completing all of their scheduled tasks ahead of schedule. The two installed an antenna assembly and relocated a floating potential measurement unit, and installed a wireless video system. The two also installed a second and third payload attachment system, a task originally scheduled for the mission's third spacewalk, and several other miscellaneous tasks not originally scheduled for Saturday's EVA. Bresnik, whose wife was expecting, announced Sunday morning that he had been told she gave birth Saturday night in Houston to a baby girl.
