STS-133: EVA #2 (NASA) Two astronauts spent over six hours outside the International Space Station on Wednesday on the second and final spacewalk of the STS-133 mission. Steve Bowen and Alvin Drew started their six-hour, 14-minute EVA at 10:42 am EST (1542 GMT), carrying out a variety of tasks outside the station. The two vented the remaining ammonia from a malfunctioning pump module moved during the mission's first spacewalk, and also performed maintenance on the Canadian Dextre robotic manipulator, among other tasks. The spacewalk's only problem came towards the end, when Drew's helmet light came loose.
