Two astronauts completed the deployment of a solar array on the International Space Station during a spacewalk Friday. Shane Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet spent six hours and 45 minutes outside the station to deploy a second solar array on the station's truss, wrapping up work that started on a spacewalk June 20. The arrays are the first two of six that will eventually be installed on top of existing solar arrays, increasing the station's overall power.
