Fuglesang Completes First Space Walk

Published onsdag 13 december 2006 kl 11.19

Sweden’s first astronaut, Christer Fuglesang, took part in a six hour space walk outside the International Space Station late Tuesday.

Together with his shuttle Discovery crewmate Robert Curbeam, Fuglesang added a new piece to the metal backbone of the station, clearing the way for a critical power rewiring later this week.

Fuglesang and Curbeam will be making two more space walks, to upgrade the International Space Station’s electrical system.
