NASA astronauts successfully complete second of three spacewalks for ISS maintenance

Space Station Astronauts Taking Spacewalk Today: Watch It Live

Only five days after previous EVA commander Randy Bresnik and flight engineer Mark Vande Hei again has left ISS and finished second and second part of service action covering replacing LEE grapplers of Canadarm2.

Spacewalking astronauts hustled through a lube job and camera swaps outside the International Space Station on Tuesday, their second trip outside in less than a week.

Bresnik and Vande Hei are slated to exit the Quest airlock around 8 a.m. EDT (1200 GMT). As the space station approached Italy early in the spacewalk, Mission Control urged Bresnik and Vande Hei to take some photos for their crewmate, Paolo Nespoli. Vande Hei is designated EV 2 and will wear a plain white spacesuit with no red stripes. The pair also lubricated the latching end effector of space station's 58-foot-long robotic arm. "I have a little bit of adrenaline going on right now", Mr. Vande Hei said as he got to work more than 400 km above Rio de Janeiro. NASA TV will broadcast the third and final spacewalk on October 18 beginning at 6:30 a.m.
